  1. What a great idea! I love the idea of reusing the lace once it’s been stamped. Gosh, I have so many new “stamp” possibilities now!! In addition to lace you could use burlap, mesh fabric, canvas, ribbon, twine…. I can’t wait to give this a try!

    • Thank you MariLynn, I will be watching to see you use this technique – our lace can match our cards perfectly now! 😀

  2. Thanks so much Roni – yes, the possibilities are endless – have fun and make sure you come back and show us! 😀
