Love these Gallery Roses by Prima with the newspaper print!
The next LO was made using the gorgeous papers from the Road Show collection by Fancy Pants. The big die cut paper was created using the Gypsy Wanderings Cricut cartridge. I played up the beautiful rust and turquoise colors of the floral design to build my page and choose my embellishments. I really wanted to make this page very girly hence the femenine accents such as the dressform, the cameo and the crochet trim. Read on to see how I created the faux lace border. Enjoy!
Don't you just love that cameo? It came from a hair tie I got at the dollar store! To add dimension to the crochet trim, I scrunched it up in random places and adhered it using hot glue.
Paper Lace Border Tutorial
Punch along the edge of your paper using an edge punch. This technique will work with different border punches but I used Marth Stewart Doily Lace border punch (my favorite).
To add texture, ink your punched border with a complementary color.
Use a trimmer to cut out your punched border allowing an inch and a half of space.
Cut up your border at every scallop.
Run your tape runner along the reverse side of the die cut shape you'd like to use, then simply adhere all the scallops upside down.
Hope you give it a try, this technique is fun and gives your die cut papers just enough difinition. Have a great week!
