A Secret Garden Birthday

February 8, 2013

0442Today I decided to play around and create a lattice card.  I have only made of these before and I really think they are cute.  For this one I cut my window in Whisper White card using one of the Label Collection Framelits.  I attached narrow strips of Whisper White card behind the opening to give the lattice effect and then attached a piece of Polka Dot Designer Series Paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Melon Mambo card.  I stamped the leaves from the Secret Garden stamp set using Old Olive ink onto Whisper White card and cut them out using the matching Framelit. 0452 I stamped the flower images onto Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink and Daffodil Delight ink and cut them out using the matching Secret Garden Framelit.  I cut two of the outline flower and cut one down and attached it to the centre of the larger one using a dimensional.  The leaves and flowers are attached to the card front around the lattice frame with the solid Melon Mambo flower attached using a dimensional.  The greeting from the Apothecary Art stamp set is stamped onto a strip of Whisper White card using Melon Mambo ink.  I cut a fish tail in one end and then attached it Old Olive card, cutting a matching fish tail.  The greeting is attached to the card front with one end underneath the solid Melon Mambo flower using dimensionals.  Lastly,  I added a large Basic Rhinestone to the centre of each flower.

I love how bright and cheery this card is and I absolutely love that I don’t have to cut each of the flower out by hand.  The Secret Garden Framelits match each of the images in the Secret Garden stamp set.  Fantastic!  You can find this fantatic suite of products in the new Seasonal Catalogue released on the 1st February.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Love it Kris. Your colours are stunning together. I don’t use brights as much as I should. I haven’t tried the lattice technique either, but will have put it on my list. TFS
