Six Ways With Lace..No.4

Hello friends,
So the lace technique is pretty obvious today, I've used a piece of pale blue cotton lace as a wrap for this gatefold card.  I sewed into place a silver buckle to the middle and look...yes, a butterfly!
The card is created by using Grand Labels Four, scoring and folding to the centre.
This would make a great card/wallet for a gift card.

So a give-away... I'm going to send out this pretty Spring-like watercolour card.  
Again, just leave me a comment.  I will cajole Bella this weekend into being the perfect employee 
and pick a winner out of the spotty cup!
Back tomorrow with lace technique number 5.
Have a lovely day everyone.

More butterflies - yey! The card is gorgeous and a great way to use the die, love the buckle idea too. As I won last time perhaps you could leave my name out this time to give others more of a chance? Love the give-away too. Regards, Anne Rx

Hi Christine,
sorry I am so late commenting, I haven't been able to get online all day, its been so busy and then I fell asleep on the sofa. Anyway, enough of my ramblings, this is about you.
I love your idea of lace wrapping, especially for a giftcard and that is beautiful card you have used for todays creation.
By the way, when will you know the final results for the Spellbinders DT? I am still keeping my fingers x'd for you.
All the best Linda
