Flourishes April Sneaks, Day One

sneakday1_2012apr11wtmk

Welcome to day one of Flourishes April sneaks! We’ve got some gorgeous things to show you this week—you will want them ALL, trust me!

Today we’re previewing two sets: Love and Lace (all about mothers) and the coordinating Antique Lace background, both by Lauren Pope. So dainty and delicate—simply beautiful.

I’m using both sets on my card today. First of all, I chose my papers and then made my own coordinating patterned paper for the bottom part of my card front using Classic Ivory card stock. LOVE this background image—it stamped perfectly and it’s gorgeous!!! Then I stamped my flowered frame and cut it out with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die and my Grand Calibur machine. Then I stamped the inner circle, with the mother and child, and cut it out the same way. I popped it up on the larger, flowered circle and added a rhinestone circle border. I also added some bling to my base card on top of a sponged doily, tied some seam binding around and added one of THESE stickpins from the Flourishes store.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:
