Trendy Thursday: Ribbon and Lace

Is ribbon and lace ever missing from a crafting"style-watch"? Not in my book anyway! If you have followed my blog long enough, you KNOW that I absolutely adore ribbon! Here, I have made a little bit of a switch-up and used Natural Hemp Twine for my bow. Narrow Basic Black Grosgrain is bunched and adhered as an accent. And, the lace is paper made with the help of my Eyelet Border Punch. I broke down the fibers with my Bone Folder (much like curling ribbon) and easily gathered it with the help of Sticky Strip. Really easy and such a fun look.

I chose some little smiling faces from the All in the Family set to coordinate with the "laughter" sentiment from one my new favorites, Word Play. I used the Signo White Gel pen to break up the Basic Black base which I had textured with Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder and the Big Shot. Patterned Poppy Parade Designer Paper is from the Level 1 Hostess Set.
Try this paper lace technique on your next card. Email me if you have questions.

Enjoy your day!--Lisa
