It's hard to believe that it's already September, and time for another fun challenge at DL ART. For those of you who are followers of Diana's blog, you may know that she has started making and selling her lovely crinkle ribbon here in the DL ART Store. It's been a lot of fun playing with Diana's lovely crinkle ribbon and twine, and I hope that you will check out her wonderful little shop.
I created my card using some patterned papers that I machine stitched together. Since I have so many vintage laces in my stash, I decided to try my hand at making these sweet little hearts I saw on Pinterest. I took some scrap pieces of canvas, cut them into heart shapes, and then laid several different vintage laces over the top, along with some vintage buttons. They turned out SO soft and sweet with a romantic feel. The crinkle ribbon I used really compliments them nicely. I used Latte Crinkle Ribbon and Aruba Blue Crinkle Ribbon in my bow, along with a length of Brown Twine.
I also ran some of the Blue Twine through a clear button that I placed in the center of my seam binding bow. I added a few little pearls as accents, and my sentiment is a rub-on that I placed on coordinating papers. I inked everything to give it a shabby chic feel. I just LOVE the vintage laces, and it was awesome finding a creative way to use them.
I love sharing close-up photos so that you can see all the wonderful textures and colors. It really helps you to see the fine details. I love how the canvas hearts turned out, and I encourage you all to try your hand at something new like this. It was a lot of fun.
I'm sharing my card here:
