LacÚ with flowers card

Lacé with flowers card

Description

A dark red pearlescent card has a circular Lacé design cut in shiny pink/mauve backing paper. Origami style flowers decorate the centre of the card. The four corners are decorated with gold stickers.

Materials used

  • Dark red greetings card 144mm square (5½ inches square)
  • Lacé template No. 8
  • Parchment craft two needle tool
  • Shiny pink/mauve backing paper
  • Pearlecent pearl paper
  • Green paper
  • Mauve paper
  • Adhesive
  • Mizuhiki strip in green
  • Sticker gold corners
  • Scissors

Method

Glue the shiny pink/mauve backing paper to the pearlecent pearl paper to create a sheet duo paper with different colours on each side. Cut this slightly smaller than the size of the greetings card.

Cut out the Lacé design in your duo paper using the template. Score and fold the design tucking the points under the unscored pieces.

You can use a Lacé knife to cut the design but the maker of this card used a parchment craft two needle tool. The needle is moved forward one hole at a time so the back needle locates in the previous hole.

The cut/perforate design can then be pushed out and folded back using the illustration as a guide.

Mount the duo paper pattern on the greetings card with adhesive.

Add a gold corner sticker to each corner.
