The Stitched Lace Dies, part of the A Little Lace bundle in the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! catalog will be available to order on June 4th. They immediately caught my eye because the lace is so reminiscent of eyelet lace, which has been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. It's a large die so you can do an entire card front with it, too!
That was my original plan until Pumpkin discovered the die cut on my desk. I had turned my back for just a minute, and the next thing I knew the little booger had it on the floor and was munching away on it. Have I mentioned my cat, who doesn't like catnip, can't resist die cuts? I have to be careful not to leave anything out!
Anyway, lucky for me, the second die is for cutting the border so I was able to salvage some of it. I made a Pool Party watercolor wash on watercolor paper and adhered the lace. The image from A Little Lace was colored with Stampin' Blends and fussy cut, then popped up on dimensionals. The greeting was swiped from Butterfly Wishes (love the mixed fonts!) and popped up over some Organdy Striped Ribbon.
The card was completed by using a Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blend to color the Clear Faceted Gem for the medium flower center and adding a couple Petal Pink Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
