Today’s card is featuring a Lasting Elegance Die, and I’m combining it with burlap and lace for contrast.

The first thing I did was cut a layer of  Thick Whisper White Cardstock with the largest, Lasting Elegance Die.

Doesn’t it make a beautiful, intricately patterned, diagonal, corner?


Before adhering to the Thick Whisper White card base, I played around with a number of papers beneath the die-cut pattern. I decided on the burlap paper from Pressed Petals DSP.

Keeping the card simple, the love birds were also cut from the burlap DSP. I used a Botanical Tags Die for cutting, and cropped the lovebirds from their cage.


“Happy day” is from the itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly die. This sentiment makes the card good for a wedding or anniversary.  I added three, tiny, pearls for punctuation.

The Scalloped Lace Trim along the top of the card was easily attached with Tear & Tape, which you can see in my Product List below.


My layout is from CAS(E) this sketch.
