Simple Lattice...

Happy Tuesday...

After yesterdays opulent card I thought I would share a simpler card today made using the Bora Bora die and the scalloped lattice die.

To start I cut the lattice die over a sheet of vanilla pearl foundations card slotting the die back in to repeat the pattern.  I then used the hexagonal die from the set into this to cut an aperture.

I cut the outline and detail die from the Bora Bora set in ivory pearl foundations card and backed this with vanilla.  I then cut the centre out using the hexagonal die in the set.


 I adhered this over the aperture cut in the background.  Next I used the centre die form the Fiji set and cut this into a piece of blue dusk foundation card and foam mounted the top piece over this.  I the  added a layer of ivory cut with the final die in the Fiji set foam mounted this behind and added stick on pearls in 3m and 5mm,



To kale up a the card I made a set of frames using vanilla and ivory and the noble double pierced dies set A and B and added layers of the colours used to make yup the card as shown!


Enjoy...

  15. I like the way in which the lattice background has been allowed to take the centre stage on this card. All too often it gets totally covered, which is a shame because it is very attractive in its own right.

  18. Morning John,
    Love this card and colours you have used.
    I'm having to miss my card class today, still feeling ill. Better than I was. Ended up yesterday asking my daughters to collect the kids early. Husband couldn't cope looking after them.
    So spending today resting and hopefully be able to do some crafting soon.
    Enjoy your day

  36. Hi John, I do like the scalloped lattice die and your card is lovely, but there was something about yesterday's card which I really fell for, but isn't it funny, I don't know what it is.

  37. Beautiful I treated myself to both the scallop lattice and the stitched lattice (mainly to go with the shadow box die) So now I will be able to do something similar!
