To create said backdrop, all you need to do is trim a piece of cardstock down to fit your card front. Since I created a standard 4.25 x 5.5" card, I trimmed my cardstock panel to 3.5 x 4.75". Then, simply lay a series of horizontal lace tape strips across the cardstock piece, covering it in it's entirety. The excess tape on the left and right edges can be trimmed to the same size of the cardstock width or wrapped around and adhered to the backside, as I've done here.
The lace tape backdrop adds some much texture, dimension and interest to the card. It does a beautiful job of highlighting the simple, stamped tag and sentiment that are the focal point of the greeting.
So, if you're short on time but need a beautiful token of your appreciation this Thanksgiving season (or anytime, really!) - reach for your lace tapes to create a stunning and sophisticated starting point!
