Happy Holidays

May stash

There is a new stash challenge up and rolling over at 52 Christmas Card Challenge.  This week’s stash challenge is lace.

This was sort of a hard challenge for me, because I do not usually make cards with lace.  However, as I stared at a piece of lace I normally would use on a big canvas, I kept thinking ‘wouldn’t this look pretty if I could get some glitter behind it’.  Then I realized, I probably could.  I pulled out some card stock and a big sheet of double sided clear adhesive and added it to the frame and add the lace on top of it.  Then I added some micro fine glitter on top of the lace and let it stick to the adhesive.  And suddenly I was off and rolling with the project.

I made two ‘ornaments’ from Elizabeth Craft circle dies and strung it from some string.  I added more glitter to the ornaments and even a little more lace.

I am really curious how you are going to play with this fun de-stashing card.  I hope you have an easier time starting then I did.  Till then, happy crafting.

  1. What a great idea to add glitter through the lace – it makes a really beautiful, and unusual, base for your card. The ornaments are lovely, you could do something like this for your tree!
