Flowering Lattice Card

Posted: 17 Feb 2019 07:09 AM PST Hello Crafty Friends – Annie here with a lovely Lattice card.

This card has an open front panel – However, you can place a colored cardstock behind the lattice for a different look.

To create this card you will need an A2 card base and a piece of cardstock measure 4-1/4″ X 5-1/2″.

On the extra panel die cut the lattice.

Next, on the card base measure a 1/8″ from the score of the card. I did a light pencil line for you to see.

Now, trim off the card base front panel.

Next, adhere the lattice to card base.

Your card should look like this – with a see through front panel.

Next, die cut several flowers and leaves.

I like to do what I call a dry run for placement of the flowers and leave so I get a general idea if I like the look of where everything will be.

Once, I like the placement. I adhere the flowers and leaves in place. Next, I add a bit of Nuvo Drops to the centers of the flowers. **Note – you can add Liquid Pearls, Stickles or any other embellishment you would like to the centers.

Now, the card is complete. You can add a sentiment if you would like. I like having blank cards like this in my stash. This way I can use them for Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Easter or Just thinking of you cards.

I hope you give this card a try.
