Hello my crafty blog friends! I hope that you aren't getting tired of looking at my lattice dies as I have a bunch of cards to show using them! I will try to spread them out a bit for you. This card happens to be the first card that I made when I received the dies. Mainly because I was dying to see what they looked like when cut using Coordinations card. I happened to grab a piece of black/turquoise backed card to try them with. Well you know what we are like as crafters, we don't waste anything(I don't want to be thrown out of the crafters union, now do I! LOL) so it became the basis for the first card. I sanded back the card to reveal the turquoise coming through giving it an edgier look. I made a faux nestie by tracing the outside shape of the lattice motif. I cut it out, sanded the edge lightly to smooth it and then added some white stitch marks around the edge. I stamped my sentiment then cut it out with the smaller lattice piece and inked it with black soot distress ink. I made a faux nestie for this shape and did matching stitching on it also. I mounted my focal element on a piece of decorative paper that I had (not sure the name though) and then mounted it another backing paper with a harlequin pattern to it. I added some black rhinestone swirls to the bottom and side and finished the card with a double bow made from the black silky crush ribbon. I added a black organza rose as a knot cover and a couple of decorative black stick pins. I used a white inksentials pen to faux stitch the edge to complete my very first lattice die card.
Just to let you know, I will be back around mid day today with another post of
