My Project for Repeat Impressions

Good morning! I'm back with a new project for Repeat Impressions. I  thought I would share a couple of ways to make a base for cards dies using with fancy lace borders. My daughter Theresa showed me this easy way to attach a base using Spellbinder's Majestic Labels #25. In this sample  a shaped card. where the lacy border  is covered by the base. After assembling the front of my card using die #6 and #5 and the the front panel is #4. I added my sentiment and my stamped and cut out the poinsettia's, I set it aside.

For the base : Use a 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 , score and fold along the 8 1/2 side
  of cream colored card stock and placed the folded side just below where the top of my card would be and cut it out using just the #6 die, as shown in photo. Glue the back of front panel to the front of folded base.

Here is a view of the side

I used pop-dots under the top panel and flowers.

This last card is a card I made earlier this year and in this one, using  die #6 for the base. In this sample the base is glued to the front  along top lacy portion, leaving a open lacy border. Cut two and emboss. I did a score line just under the lacy top border ( so you can open the card) on one of them and glued just the top lace parts together. The front of the card was made using a piece of MME DP and die #5 cut and embossed it. Using very vanilla CS cut and emboss #3 and #4. I then sponged a little memento ink and attached my cut out images.

A side view.
