A Lattice Card

March 24, 2012

I have wanted to make a lattice card for quite some time and when I saw the new Framelits Labels Dies I knew I had to finally give it a try.

I cut Whisper White card stock using one of the larger Framelits Labels Collection Dies and then cut 5mm wide strips of Whisper White card stock to make the lattice strips.  Once I had attached all of the strips behind the frame,  I attached a piece of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper behind the opening.  Then I attached the whole piece to a layer of Pool Party card stock and lastly  to scored and folded Poppy Parade card stock.  I stamped the large flower from the Vintage Vogue stampset onto scrap Whisper White card stock using Poppy Parade ink and cut it out.  I stamped the small flower from the Vintage Vogue stampset onto scrap Whisper White card stock using Poppy Parade ink twice and twice more, stamping off onto scrap paper first.  I cut these four flowers out as well.  I cut Lucky Limeade card stock using the Little Leaves Sizzlit and arranged them around the bottom left hand side of the lattice frame.  I attached the flowers over the leaves and added Basic Rhinestones to the centres.

For my first attempt at this style of card, I am pretty happy.  What do you think?

A couple of things to note, the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper will not be available after the 31st March when Sale-A-Bration ends.  The Summer Mini catalogue also ends on the 31st March.  Soooo… if you haven’t placed your qualifying order to get your hands on this absolutely gorgeous Designer Series Paper, then you need to hurry.  I would hate for you to miss out, because once Sale-A-Bration is finished, none of the products in that catalogue will ever be seen again.  With the end of the Summer Mini we will no longer be able to purchase any the Simply Adorned range either, so if you love these gorgeous Charms and Baubles, then you also need to get your order in before the end of March.   There will also be other products in this catalogue which do not make next years Idea Book and Catalogue, so if you want them, you need to order them now.

However, on a more positive note, the Framelits Labels Collection Dies become available on the 1st April, along with some other absolutely gorgeous products, including Edgelits Dies and matching embossing folders.  Sound exciting, well it is.  So while I am always sad to see the end of one catalogue, it is very exciting to see the beginning of another.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Wow Kris – this is a gorgeous card. Have avoided a lattice card until now but you have inspired me. Love the addition of the flowers from Vintage Vogue. Why is it I always forget about this set?
