Love and Lace and Antique Lace


Welcome To Flourishes April Release Week, day one peaks!! This is my first Release Week, so please excuse my excitement and pardon my mistakes :)  Today's peak's are extra special, because Flourishes has TWO to show off this morning and oh my, are they gorgeous!

The first one is called "Love and Lace". What a lovely mother and child silhouette!!


The next one is called "Antique Lace".  Isn't it dreamy?


The bold silhouette of a mother holding her baby with a beautiful lace wreath to surround her, just melts my heart. Every sentiment included really speaks from the heart. And the perfect pairing is the "Antique Lace" background. It's so soft and dainty that you can almost feel the texture of lace when you stamp it! It's a large enough stamp to create the perfect backdrop for the "Love and Lace" set :)


I used the  "Love and Lace" as my focal point image and the "Antique Lace" background stamp behind it. I stamped everything on Flourishes "Classic White" cardstock, that I embossed with Spellbinders "Flourish" embosser. I used some pearls and diecuts, then finished the card by tying a pretty Maya Arts "White" ribbon around it.

  18. I love how elegant your card is! I'd also like to know what was used for the die-cut at the bottom. Is it one of the new Spellbinders Edgeabilities?

    1. Hi Crystal :) Yes, it is a Spellbinders Edgeability but it is older, I've had it for about 3 years. It's called "Classic Lace".
