3 Ways with Altenew's Creative Edge; Lace die

Welcome to the next edition of "3 Ways With", today I will be focusing on the Lace Edge die from Altenew's Creative Edge's range.

As always I will show you 3 ways in which the die can be used and link all of the products used at the end of my post.

I created lots of patterned papers with some Distress Oxide Ink Pads; (Frayed Burlap, Peacock Feathers and Old Paper) and Kuretake Gansai Tambi pearl colour paints, I wanted a soft feminine look that I could use to die cut flowers from.

Lace edge

My first card shows the simplest way in which the die can be used, to create a lace edge on your card. I cut a piece of Neenah solar crest to 4.25" x 5.5", I placed the Creative Edges; Lace die on the right hand side and added washi tape to hold it in place while running it through my die cutting machine.

I paced my die cut panel onto some blue card as that it shows through the lace area. I flicked distress ink and Kuratake Pearl colours to create a speckled background. I added a flower and leaves using the Peony Dreams 3D die set. I also stamped and heat embossed a sentiment using the More than words stamp set,  Embossing Ink and Platinum Embossing Powder.

Twin lace edge panel

The die can be cut twice, creating a twin lace edged panel. You can cut further apart or closer together to create a different feel. I cut a piece of blue paper to use as a panel on my card, it makes a great focal point.

I cut the letters using the Bold Alpha Dies set, I cut them 4 times and stacked them up to create a faux chipboard. The sentiment strip is from the Label love stamp set.  To keep the floral theme flowing, I added a floral element using the Ditsy Print stamp and Ditsy Print die set. (Inks listed below)

Lace backdrop

The die can be used to create strips of lace which can be butted up to each other to make a lace panel. I cut 3 of the lace edge and adhered them to a piece of blue paper, to create a lace feature at the bottom.

I then cut flowers and foliage from my home made papers using the Rose Flurries dies. I added some splatters using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi pearl colour paints and added an embossed sentiment using the Label love stamp set and Platinum Embossing Powder.
