Faux Lace with a Butterfly: Emboss Resist Video

Good morning!  Here is my newest video.  I am pairing up the Love chapter verse from Stately Flowers 8, showing how beautifully it works as a focal point on your cards, with the butterfly from Make a State-ment, a set I planned to work with every set in the Stately Flowers series.  (The greetings in this set can be used stand alone or paired with any of the state names or flowers.  The map and its pushpin and arrows are so fun!)  You'll see how easy it is to create the look of a lace border (which is also dimensional) with this emboss resist technique.

Supplies used: 
Stately Flowers 8 and Make a State-ment
Pure Luxury White Cardstock
Versamark, Gina K. Black Onyx and Cherry Red ink pads
red marker, glitter pen, sponge dauber, scissors, adhesive pearl
embossing powder and heat tool


  1. Beautiful! You make it look so easy in the video, a lot less steps than I had imagined! The butterfly gives the card a doily appearance on the edges.

  2. LOVELOVELOVELVOELOVE this!!! Must give it a try ASAP!!! TFS!

  3. wow, this is just stunning. Great tutorial too :)

  4. I love this technique! I don't have that butterfly stamp, but I'm going to look at what I do have in a different way. Thanks for the tutorial.


Your generous feedback helps make my work and this blog better! Thanks for inspiring and motivating me! :)
