Rabbits, ribbon & lace . . . oh my

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Challenge #148 - Lace and Ribbon

The sponsor for this challenge is:

Prize: 3 digital images


Today I have used the Easter Bunny digital stamp from Fabrika Fantasy,
one of our generous sponsors this week, to make an easel card.

Our challenge for this week is calling for ribbon and lace, so I had fun weaving black satin ribbon through the paper lace panel of my card.

I planned my card on my Silhouette Cameo design mat, starting with an ornate panel (Laced Topper, free cut file, details below) that I converted into an easel card.  I sized the digital image to fit inside the front panel and added a pretty green background using digital paper (details below).

I printed the image on X-Press It blending card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.  I trimmed the panel down and matted with black cardstock.  I thought the black tied in well with the image, as it has quite solid lines.  I added some Wink Of Stella sparkle to the egg.

Next came the card base.  I cut the base, inner lacy mat, top lacy panel and top mat using my Silhouette Cameo.  I scored the base halfway along to make the top fold, then scored the in the 3rd "valley" of the design to make the "easel" fold.  I took the inner matting panel and trimmed off the top edge (just below the circles of the lacy pattern) and adhered it inside the card.

I tried several different black satin ribbons and ended up using a 3mm spool to weave through the circles of the lacy pattern for the top front panel.  As each corner ended with a circle, I used four lengths of ribbon, pulling the ends back and adhering them securely in place with liquid adhesive.  I adhered the matted image panel in place then decided that it needed some bling, so I added tiny rhinestones to the tips of the design of the lacy panel.  I used liquid adhesive to secure the panel in place on the matting layer, then adhered the bottom half of the panel to the bottom half of the card base (I applied liquid adhesive to the card base then aligned the front panel on top).

I trimmed layers for the sentiment panel and used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment (and really appreciated that I could repeat stamp it perfectly several times, as the textured cardstock really didn't want to be stamped).  I adhered the layers together and popped it in place with foam dots.
 Once all the pieces were in place I decided to add more bling, starting with a fancy black bling pattern to the Easter egg and finishing with black rhinestones to the circles of the inside matting layer.

Here are some more pics.
