Paper Lace!

Yippie!  I am so excited!  I have a fun video for you today on how to make this pretty Paper Lace on your cards.  I am on this big kick to make anything old looking.  I guess I should say, more shabby!  I always like to use Stampin' Up! products but I really wanted to use Lace on this card.  That's when the idea hit my little brain and I came up with paper lace!  I am sure I am not the first to come up with the idea, but I haven't seen it around.  Here is the card I made:

Here is a close look at the paper lace:

It's super easy.  Watch the video to see how you can make these yourself.  It's super cold freezing here in Colorado.  Snowflakes are still coming down.  I need to learn how to stamp in a Parka.  🙂  On to the video!  Russ filmed for me and he pulls a fast one in the video!  I love that man! Anyhoo, enjoy!

Stamp Sets: Scenic Season, Serene Snowflakes

I hope you are warmer than I am.  I am getting ready to pull out my new toys and play.  Whoo hoo!


  1. Kim,
    I just had to tell you that I simply adore your work.  I could absolutely pick out one of your cards from just about anything.  I admire that you have such a distinct style!  I LOVE your lace idea!  Thanks for sharing.

  2. P.s Thanks to Hubby for doing the video. Russ, you did a great job. Bring it on. We need more of this creativity….

  3. Well you are just too clever Kimberly; paper lace is a great idea …I love it. 
    I love you card style vintage and so, so pretty.
    Oh and by the way Russ, you are a great camera man.

  4. Very nice!  Could see the cameraman bouncing the camera (assuming laughter to your comment) when you use sticky strip to keep a husband quiet.  I had to laugh and what a great way to start a day!

  5. very cool!! I did see the camera go back and forth with a "no" motion when you said to use the sticky strip on your husband!! Funny….
    Thanks for the video tutorial – loved it!! Keep warm.

  6. Fantastic card Kimberly!!!  Love the vintage lace.  I`ve never had an urge to buy the eyelet punch but now am thinking it`s a must!  Love the glitter on your card also.  Thanks for sharing it with us!

  7. Great card, great idea!  I wonder if the crimper would work, hmmm, may have to experiment!  Love your site and your videos, keep up the great work!

  8. I love your stamp/scrapbooking style–very cute! This card is no exception : ) Keep up the good work.

  9. I enjoyed seeing you make this card very much!  The paper lace is really cute and I am glad you video taped it.  I am a visual learner so it really helps me.
