Spellbinders Queen Anne’s Lace Tutorial with Simple Stories Remember
Hello, Friends! This Spellbinder’s Queen Anne’s Lace Tutorial is our February 2024 Flower of the Month. Queen Anne’s Lace grew wild in the fields and along the roadsides of my Vermont childhood. Many and many a lazy summer afternoon was spent picking these delicate beauties and making flower crowns or bouquets with them. I always thought they were too elegant to be considered a weed, and my mom agreed. She told me that they were grown in formal gardens in England, and I don’t know if this is true or not. But they should be, as I think they are one of Nature’s most beautiful offerings.
At first glance, I was afraid these flowers would be hard to make. But I was delighted to find that they come together quickly and are very easy to make. I’ll show you how in the video tutorial below.
Queen Anne’s Lace and Simple Stories Remember Sympathy Card
Because of the delicate beauty of the Queen Anne’s Lace, I decided to create a sympathy card. Simple Stories new Remember collection is gorgeous, and so appropriate for use on a sympathy or get well card. I’ll share a peek at the patterns and images in the video tutorial, too.
TIP: Create a lush floral arrangement by pairing your handmade flowers with pre-made flowers. This allowed me to add various textures, sizes, and color to the arrangement.
A Peek Inside
The inside of this card has a simple, peaceful vibe. I did create a pocket, but kept it quite simple.
After matting the tag on white cardstock, I ran a bit of ribbon through it to finish it off. The tag doubles as a bookmark, and I love the sentiment. . Since I grew up in a household where a cup of hot tea was pretty much the cure for anything, I created a little tea wallet to tuck inside the pocket as well.
The sentiments in this collection are so well done.
