All Occasion Lace Square Card Tutorial

Greetings, friends, Margie here with an intricate All Occasion Lace Square Card made with one thin metal die set! By lifting up the layers with 3D Foam Strips, it makes the card go from beautiful to stunning!

All Occasion Lace Square Card Base

Die-cut black and white cardstock with my one thin metal die set. By using two contrasting cardstock colors, I create a simple and elegant look. For this card, I used two white squares, one black intricate cut card panel, one black circle shape and its coordinating intricate circle design in white.

The two square shapes will be the card base. Score 1/2-inch on the top of the solid square. This scored area will become the hinge on top of the card.

Using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, I took out the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Strips Refill cartridge and replaced it with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill. This is such an easy step to replace. OR use our newly released E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser (I do not have one…yet.).

Visit the quick How to Use and Refill the E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers video below.

Now that you have your E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill set up, apply it on the decorative edge square about 1/2-inch on the top. I use this adhesive on die cuts because it only covers the cut areas. If there is any residue, simply rub it off! Once applied, put the two squares together to make one square card base.

Card Front Layers

For the black intricate cut card panel, I placed 3D Foam Strips to the narrow areas. It lifts the layers to create dimension and interest to the card design.

Designer Tip: Color your 3D Foam Strips to match your card panel color. I colored mine with a black marker and the excess white foam disappeared!

Lastly, I added self-adhesive cream pearls to the card front and done!
