Crochet Lace

Good morning, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!  
Today is my day to post on the Die-Versions blog, and I've chosen to showcase the beautiful 'Crochet Lace' Die.  I've used this border die in three ways, to give an idea of the versatility of this, 
or any of the Die-Version border dies.

First up is the border used diagonally.  I think it really pops against the colors, don't you?  Love the diagonal look, and can't wait to use it again!

Image is digi from Bugaboo Stamps. Sentiment and Butterflies are from GKD. Image colored with Copics.

Who can resist a CAS card?  
This card uses the 'Crochet Lace' Die as a 'ruffle' under the sentiment. 
Flower is from Amuse Studio, Button Candies from Stampin'Up, sentiment unknown, Perfect Papercrafting Rulers (see sidebar for details).

Last, but not least, the 'Crochet Lace' die was used here on the side.  
I've offset the image, to give the die a bit more of a showcase.
Image is from Amuse Studio. Inks are Tim Holtz Distress and Versafine Black.

'Crochet Lace' is one of my favorite dies from Die-Versions.  It cuts so beautifully, the cardstock nearly falls out of the die, and it is such a pretty embellishment on a card.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll pop over to Die-Versions and check out all of their amazing dies.  We'd love for you to follow the Die-Versions Blog, as well. There is daily inspiration for all!

Have a great day,
Patti J.

The lace die is beautiful Patti. I love the cards you created using it. I had never thought to use a lace die diagonally. It gives a great effect, thank you for sharing your ideas.

Hope you had a wonderful St. Patty's Day! What a lovely border die - I like things that can be used over and over in different ways. Great job on the cards!

I love that border and it and the DP with the butterflies is just perfect to show off your cutie little girl! Gad, a look at the second card with the same beautiful lace and the button candies on the kraft color background is just too wonderful. I am just starting to learn how to use the Perfect Rulers. Any tips? Your third card needs to be framed. Those butterflies, the beautiful border and the image are perfect for one another with the great design you did!!

All three cards are beautiful but I especially like the little girl.
