Warmest Wishes Practical Scrappers Challenge
This week on Practical Scrappers the challenge was to use lace cardstock. Well here is my take. I purchased a piece of lace cardstock a couple of years ago and I am still trying to use it up. I love the look of it I just can't seem to find a use for it. This challenge was defnitely out of my comfort zone. I also wanted to try and use up my scraps and embellishments left over from other projects as well as include my newly purchased Felt Flurries. These felt snowflakes are from last year's Stampin Up holiday mini but are on clearance right now.
I decided to use the lace cardstock as a way to add texture to my card. I cut a piece of the lace cardstock the same size as the square of baja breeze blue cardstock. Then I used pop dots on the back of the lace to give even more dimension. When the card was all finished I still thought it needed some sparkle so I added crystal stickles to various sections of the lace cardstock as well as to the felt snowflakes.
