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.

    Beautifully detailed, gently presented and perfectly sympathetic for any recipient at such a sad time. Love the way you mixed the blooms and the papers, right down to dove on the inside of the tea envelope. I also see this die in a wedding bouquet type card, in behind the featured blooms, it really has many uses. Thanks for the tutorial Kathy.

    So pretty, Kathy and fun to see a new paper flower. Your choice of the other flowers matches the paper perfectly. I’m trying to think if I can apply this technique to making sugar Queen Anne’s Lace, nothing I’ve ever seen done before.

    Hello, dear Kathy! This card is simply stunning!! I love the delicate contrast of the Queen Ann’s Lace to the large mandala. The papers that you used are perfect, too. Big hugs and many blessings, dear friend!

    Hi Kathy- I too grew up with Queen Anne’s lace in the fields next door. To this day it is my favorite flower. For a year I worked in an Arizona hospital lab and one of the reagents we used was thymol. It smells like Queen Anne’s lace which reminded me of spring and summer in New York. It turns out that inhaling thymol fumes was not the healthiest thing to do, so it’s good I moved back to NY where I could rub the leaves and smell them to my heart’s content.
