Paper Pricking

As a girly girl card maker/paper crafter I LOVE lace. The look it gives is so pretty, feminine and soft. I really wish I could find more lace in the style, width and color that I like to use. It really seems to be of short supply in the Manchester/Nashua, NH area.

So, you can imagine how happy I was when I discovered some digital templates for paper pricking. My very first exposure to the paper pricking digital templates are the ones offered from Fred She Said. Some of her paper pricking templates come with the flower packages, some without and even a freebie or two here on the blog.

This is one of the first cards I made with a FSS paper pricking template, which you can see here.

Paper pricking Love You

I love how I don't have to use the whole template to make a pattern. The hearts in each corner were made with the same template.

Paper pricking Love You CU I really like that I can also choose which side of the pattern I want to use. I can use the back side for more texture or the front side for a smoother look.

If you click on these 2 photos you will be able to see them a bit larger and in more detail. One of the things you will notice is that the paper I used under the vellum is seen through the paper pricking holes. I really like the look this gives it.

Paper pricking Love You butterflyBecause the pattern is so soft, I thought I would add a pretty butterfly in the center. I embossed each layer with my cuttlebug folders using my big shot and then cut out the butterfly using the Stamping Up bigZ die.

As you click on this photo to get a better look, you will see the lovely shimmer that the pink and white paper has. This paper is from Paper Temptress. I love her paper and use it with just about every card I make.  The simmer of this Iridescent paper is so beautiful, I really don't have to add much to it.

Another wonderful thing I could do with the digital template is size it to my project. For the inside of my card I wanted continuity, so I printed out the template a bit smaller. Then cut it out with nestabilities when I finished pricking another part of the template pattern.

Paper pricking Love You inside Paper pricking Love You inside CUI opted to use the same pearls as I did for the butterfly in each corner. 

I am planning a tutorial for paper pricking very soon, hopefully next week.

I also have some fun news to share with you tomorrow. I hope you have a bit of time to stop by and see what I have in store.

Hugs, Sandy O
