Has anyone heard of the Filigree Card? For the longest I have been seeing these cards pop up here and there and wondered how folks were creating cards with a filigree border. My curiosity got the best of me, and I wasted a lot of paper trying to figure out how it was being done.
Then finally, I decided to visit the campus of my favorite university....YouTube University...and I started my search with any word I could think of to describe the card I was trying to mimic.
Well Lady Luck was with me tonight and I finally found a tutorial that described how to create that filigree edge. So I gave it a whirl..... well to be honest with everyone I actually had to do it 3 times before I finally got it close enough to call it success and now I am going to share it with you.
I printed a quote on turquoise card-stock to match the front of the card and then cut it down to size before adhering it to the inside.
The tutorial is from Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace. I refer to Becca as the Bow Lady because her bows are simply amazing and I love her tutorials.
I hope you will give the Filigree card a try. They are gorgeous and you can do so much with this one technique.
