Found My Lace!

Well, if you haven’t figured it out, I finally straightened out all my laces and got them wound onto matboard (granted not little pieces like I do with my Ribbon Storage).  Now that I can get to it all and it’s filed away in a drawer, I’ve fallen in love with it all over again.  Several of you have asked where I got it and unfortunately I have no idea.  I only have Walmart, Michaels and Joanns around but I have a stash of fabric and laces because I sew too.  If I had to bet on it, I think the one I’m using today is from Michaels and was purchased within the last three or four months.  Lace addicts know that you can find lace in the least likely places for recycling and tucked in odd places in department stores, right?!?  So on to my card today, I wanted a vintage look so I went for chocolate with a hint of mauve which is one of my favorite palettes.

It would have been a shame to cover up those stripes so I cut two Spellbinders Lacey Circles and hollowed them out using Spellbinders Standard Circles SM and paired them up with the leaves from Spellbinders Foliage.  I ran a small scallop across the top of my lace using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Borderabilities Petite and topped everything off with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two off to the left side.  Can I just say that the Nestabling that I used on the Fancy Tags Two makes my heart sing!!  They’ve already configured the pearls – all I have to do is stick them down and I think they look stunning!!  I’m using a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs May Release called Porch — what a sweet set!

  • Pam BlairMay 22, 2011 - 2:09 pm

    Happy Sunday sweet blessings to you Becca and everyone who has left a comment. Your card is stunning, stunning and more stunning. I don’t know how you come up with the ideas for all the gorgeous cards you make, but each card is truly amazing and ever so precious. I’m constantly looking around in my shopping expeditions in antique and thrift stores for beautiful lace, but never seem to be able to find it. I remember years ago you could find it almost anywhere. Thank you for sharing all your fabulous ideas with all of us. Your creative talent is definitely a gift from the Lord.ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth LincolnMay 22, 2011 - 2:11 pm

    What I do to not waste ribbon or lace is only use enough to cover the part that shows. I cut the ribbon/lace at the diecut leaving the part underneath with nothing.ReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithMay 22, 2011 - 2:21 pm

    Love the vintage feel of this card Becca. Very pretty as always. Thanks for answering about locations of where you find all your beautiful lace. I guess I will have to be more diligent in my search. I do shop at JoAnns alot as I am a sewer also. Of the stores you have mentioned, they have the largest variety of lace. Don’t think I have seen any at our Michaels, and our Walmarts have gotten rid of their sewing departments. As large as San Diego is, you would think that we would have a better selection of stores then we do. This has always been a complaint of mine since we moved here almost 20 years ago.

  • Edna BurgessMay 22, 2011 - 2:21 pm

    Beautiful card. Love those colors also. How do you get the thick lace to go behind the card without looking funny? I seem to have trouble with that. EdnaReplyCancel

    Hello and Happy Sunday Becca,
    What a Beautiful Card! I was wondering if you can help me in regards to the seam binding you use. Is it Rayon or Cotton and where can you locate it. I have been to our local Joanns and they only have the folded Quilt binding. Thank you for your help and Thank you for being our Inspiration. Have a wonderful day.ReplyCancel

    It’s lucky for us that you have found your lace. Your card is gorgeous Becca. Pearls and lace they really do compliment each other. Lovely color combination. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-DReplyCancel

  • BernieMay 22, 2011 - 3:35 pm

    WOW!!! I love every bit of it. So very beautiful!
    Our WalMart no longer has a sewing section and I’ve never seen lace at our Michael’s either. I have found some in thrift shops and yard sales. I am ashamed to admit my lace is a tangled mess. Most of it was purchased in grab bags when Ben Franklin closed their doors over twenty years ago. None of it is as beautiful as yours but still deserves to be give a little love. You have inspired me to get them organized.
    Blessings BernieReplyCancel

    Hi Becca!
    Ditto and more Ditto… everything that has already been said above! Because of you I now have an organized ribbon and lace area in my craft room. I love using lace as much as you do and I love the added “specia-ness” that people feel when they receive a card like this! I love all your ideas and as I’m able to get the tools I need to make them……..I know where to go for ideas!!
    Thank you ever so much for helpings all of us on our road to higher levels of creativity. You are just the best Becca………and so appreciated!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca – beautiful card! I am a lace addict – i would have to say this looks like wedding lace :) that is where I look when I want to find extra gorgeous lace :) Your creations are always so scrumptious!ReplyCancel

  • Pat JandacekMay 22, 2011 - 4:32 pm

    I agree with your remark about the Nestabling – makes the heart sing! I also really like the idea of the ‘wreath’ structure to not obscure the background. A beautiful card, of course!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara WilsonMay 22, 2011 - 4:44 pm

    Beautiful card. Lovely vintage look. We still have fabric in our Wal-Mart but when they remodel they will no doubt do away with it and when they came to town they closed all of our fabric stores.ReplyCancel

    The layout of this card is great! I can use it for some much needed birthday cards that will be used in the coming month. The wreath like appearance is great and the scripture I love but don’t own any stamps but the basic birthday,sympathy,and thinking of you. This gives me a starting place on a rainy day when I ‘m inside. Thanks it is very pretty and the colors are perfect together.ReplyCancel

I have such a fettish for beautiful wrapping paper and ribbon, ribbon, ribbon. My absolute favorite time if year, is Christmas. Not only because, I believe it is the one time of the year, people truly do get along with each other; but, because, now I get to wrap presents. Have a great day Becca. I just love the work you do.

  • Francie (Montreal)May 23, 2011 - 7:43 am

    Your card reminds me of Andrea Bocelli’s music. I think it’s the brown/beige striped background and ribbon through the beautiful lace. So elegant, stately and yet warm at the same time. Both card and music infuse me with warmth and happiness. The Nestabling and rose/leaves add a delightful light touch. Your creativity simply knocks my socks off.ReplyCancel
