I hope you guys like lace, because I sure have been posting a lot with it lately! Today's share is about ways to use the 12x12 lace sheets that come in the Delightfully Detailed specialty laser-cut lace paper pack. All of the cards shown today used just ONE sheet, and you get four in a pack (plus the four additional cut-apart sheets), so one package is going to go a long way. But you better buy two, just in case : )
I was cleaning out my purple scrap bin because it was so full the lid wouldn't close! So most of these are Rich Razzleberry and a few Fresh Fig, with an accent of Sweet Sugarplum, which I really miss since it retired this spring. Hoping we see that one come back as a regular family member in the next color remodel.
ONE lace sheet gave me enough trimmed-out motifs to decorate 10 full size cards. if you just needed an accent bit, it would stretch even further. But I needed quick thank yous, so lace and a punch and pearls was it for me.
These are all actually quite easy layouts--it's the lace that makes them so incredibly elegant. Choose a font style for your sentiment that fits the refined feel of the textures. I used the Darling Label Punch Box for my cards.
I need ten more thank yous and I still have three more 12x12 sheets to play with, so I guess I'll clean out my bulging pink scrap bin next! Oh one more thought before I sign off today--if you don't already own a pair, treat yourself to a set of Paper Snips when you order the lace paper. They are so sharp and finely pointed, it just makes life so much better when you're handcutting around images or snipping out super-delicate flowers and leaves.
Wanna make these beauties at home? Here's what you'll need to gather:

If you missed it, I posted a 20-card class on using the other half of the Delightfully Detailed lace papers that is free during the month of September 2018. Between that class and this post, you're all set! ENJOY that paper. Can wait to hear what you made with it!
