Lace Borders White Work

This pattern includes both lace and white work with shadow embossing. The pattern is from a pamphlet of patterns from Dorothy Holness. Dorothy’s patterns are well know throughout Europe, her work is loved by all, her workshops were filled to capacity. How I wish I could have been present at one of those workshops.

A grid was used for the lace borders. I lightly traced the pattern with a white pencil, once the focal image was embossed, I removed the white pencil lines with a bit of Dorso Oil. I embossed, perforated and cut the lace borders.

Roses White work

I used regular parchment paper for the outer and inner cards and dorsed the inner card with Pergamano’s Dorso Crayons to create a rainbow pattern on the inner card.

    This is lovely, Jerri. The flowers flow so beautifully, so gracefully! And I love the lace! Thank you so much for sharing your art with us!

    The more I study the details of this card, the more I am in awe of your skill. The intricacy of the lace is amazing. I don’t even dare ask how many hours that took. And the flowers are something else altogether. Having done some parchment work in the past, I know the skill it takes to get the shading so perfectly embossed with such a gentle, smooth transition (something I never really mastered). I could look at your cards all day!

    Hugs, Cathy

  8. AMAZING! That floral is SO beautiful!!!

    Spectacular. Your lace is exquisite and the shading on the flowers and leaves is perfection – not sure you needed a class from the pattern designer.

  11. Dottie says:

    This is gorgeous! The flowers look so soft and delicate. I think my eyes would strain while I worked at such intricate detail in this pattern. The result though is just stunning!

    Beautiful as usual! Honestly I’m not sure how you are able to post so many since each card looks like it would take days to make. I’m curious how many hours go into a card like this and maybe one where you color the inside flower?

  18. Beautifully done and I love the graduated colors for the background!!
