Vintage Vogue January Workshop Card

(Based on a design posted on by "redheaded witch" (12/23/09)

The paper lace, or faux lace, made a very sweet addition to the Vintage Vogue card made in my January 9 workshop. I've got a couple of different techniques for you, but first I'll tell you about the one we did in the workshop.

Materials and supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise indicated):

• Vintage Vogue* (117690 (w - $23.95); 118598 (c - $17.95); set of 8)

• Naturals Ivory card stock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")
• Very Vanilla card stock - 2" x 5"; 2" x 2.25"; 1 1/2" x 8 1/2"; scrap for flowers
• Bridesmaid Designer Series Paper - 5 1/4" x 4"

• Soft Suede Classic Stampin’ Pad

Stampin’ Up! Accessories

1. Use Soft Suede Classic Ink and the Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel to stamp image on the 2" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla CS; stamp the Friends image and the two Flower Images on the scrap piece of Very Vanilla CS with the same color. Cut out the two flower images.

2. Use your Stampin' Sponge to daub Soft Suede Classic Ink around edges of every piece; on the Bridesmaid DSP, sponge color onto entire piece.

3. Adhere Bridesmaid DSP to front of card with SNAIL Adhesive.

4. Tie knot in ribbon, twisting ribbon around to make sure that only solid side is showing; wrap around 2" width of 2" x 5" Very Vanilla CS, and adhere to back with SNAIL. Use SNAIL to adhere this piece on top of the Bridesmaid DSP.

5. Layer flowers with the small one on top, and use a Vintage Brad to attach to 2" x 2 1/4" Very Vanilla CS next to Friends image.

6. Make faux lace as shown on Kim Van Diepen's blog (, and attach to back of 2" x 2 1/4" Very Vanilla cardstock with Sticky Strip. Attach this piece to the front of the card with a Stampin' Dimensionals in each of the top corners and Sticky Strip behind the lace.

And that's it! A beautiful, girly card for a close friend!

BTW . . . I did a make & take last week with my Front Range Stampers group (Stampin' Up! demonstrators based in the North Denver area). It was a "techniques card" for this paper lace. They did it a little differently, and called it "faux suede lace." Instead of using the bone folder to weaken the fibers in the CS, they used the crimper and ran the paper through 6 or 7 times . . . then peeled the paper apart, separating it into two layers. This left a rough texture on the "inside" side of the paper, and made it thinner so it gathered a little easier. Definitely a variation of this technique worth trying on this card!

I'm kind of starting to get the hang of this, so I should be able to get the other two projects up within the next couple of days. In the meantime, hope you enjoy this card.
