Lace Tape card backdrop

Hi Love My Tape friends, it's Jaclyn here today.  Do you need to whip up a quick card for the host/hostess of your Thanksgiving celebration?  If so, you're in luck!  I've got a quick and easy solution for you that's high on style and texture.  The secret ingredient to making this card both beautiful and simple is the lace tape backdrop.

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!
