Lexi Creations 88 Add Lace or Ribbon

We are sponsored today at Lexi’s Creations by Fairy Dust Crafts, and our challenge to you is to add lace or ribbon.

Lexi 88

I have gone for a very simple design using a lovely new embossing folder from Crafters’ Companion’s Embossalicious range. They have some lovely 8” and A4 folders if you want to do larger cards and this is from their 8” range. The top and bottom, as you can see are slightly different patterns.

I used some lovely double sided pearl card. I have actually inked the embossing folder before putting it through my Happy Cut, with a triple coloured inkpad from Tsukineko. I also went over it with Peacock Feathers DI when I finished. Sadly, neither are showing up in the photograph. I think perhaps a non pearl card might be better if you want to ink either before or after as I suspect it didn’t ‘take’ the ink terribly well.

The ribbon, a lush turquoise velvet was from my stash as was the prima flower which I added a metal floral brad to the centre of. It’s all matted onto turquoise mirri card.

I am entering this into the following:-
