DIY: Lace Card

What you will need:
 1. A blank card and envelope. (Paper Source)
2. Lace (I had it)
3. PVA Glue (Paper Source)
4. VersaMark stamp pad (Paper Source or Michaels)
5. Ranger Embossing powder (Paper Source) *Ranger is the best brand of embossing powder I have found.  
6. Heat Tool (Paper Source or Michaels)
7. Paint brush (Michaels)
Step 1:
 I started with the envelope because it was a bigger surface area.  Spread out your lace and see how the design lines up with your envelope.  The lace I used had an intricate design that I wanted to keep in tact as much as possible.  
Step 2:
 Once you find how it fits best, cut it out and glue it to your envelope with a small amount of PVA glue.  *be careful not to glue shut your envelope pocket, and make sure to leave enough of the seal available to seal the envelope when you’re done.
 I wrapped the long, lace design around the envelope and up the front for a little fun.
Step 3:
 Use the same principles above to make your card.  Line up your lace and glue it your card.
 Then trim it once it’s dried to make sure it looks clean.
Step 4:

 And you’re done!  A really simple way to make a very different and elegant card! 
Sending all our love to you!
