Botanical Strip Elegance

Hello friends, I am sharing a very quick card tonight - but definitely with the WOW Factor - wouldn't you agree!?  I just love the Spellbinders Die Strips - they are so versatile and so easy to use - using just the filigree insert adds such an elegance to a card - a beautiful focal point.  This card would be suitable for so many occasions.

Cut/emboss the filigree insert only of the Stacey Caron Holiday Holiday Botanical Strip on to lower portion of the gold card stock.  Remove excess pieces using Tool 'n One.

Score the gold card stock and 1/2'" intervals - scoring from the back. Adhere narrow lace between scoring lines - secure at the back using double sided tape. Pop  the old card stock up onto a  pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser

Add a stamped sentiment, popping it up onto the rows of lace using 3D Foam Squares; followed by a double seam binding bow and Mulberry paper rose.  Finish by adding Want2Scrap white pearls along the top of the filigree pattern.
