Cards from the bakery supply isle

One day I saw a package of paper lace doily that was meant for decoration around cake boards.  It reminded me of some of the lace boarder dies that I’ve been eyeing every time I’m in a craft store.  I haven’t bought any lacy dies yet so I thought the paper lace doily would make an inexpensive lace border on some cards.


I saw a card with a lace boarder I liked and used it as inspiration to make this thanks card.


I loved the simple, clean lines of the card so I made a few with different flowers that I had on hand.


I changed the color of the ink I used to coordinate with the flowers.

100_9513  100_9515   The package I bought was about $2 and it had 3 – 40” strips of paper lace.  One pack was enough to make 18 cards.  Not bad for a quick and simple way to add a lacy accent to cards. 

Next time you find yourself in the cake decoration isle take a look and see if there is something you can use that doesn’t require making a cake, unless of course you are craving a cake while you craft…..
