Lattice Poinsettia Background

Hi there my crafty friends!  This post is dedicated to the Lattice Poinsettia Background die.  You may have noticed it in the previous post too, but I cut it twice to make a larger area.  Shown here cut to it's actual size, you can see what a striking background it makes.  You can use it with a sentiment in the middle or offset underneath as I have.  This background has been designed to fit nicely within the Mosaic Bauble Background shown yesterday too.  Don't forget to add your comments to this post.  The next die will be released at 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

I have recognized the Lattice Poinsettia Background die from the previous post but I haven't noticed that you cut it twice for that one. White is pretty but cut it in red is gorgeous. As any other frame it can be used as it is or you can cut up the poinsettia to be used as separate pieces if desired, as you did for this card.So beautiful, so versatile, so easy to use. Love it and so excited for the next post!

Glad you pointed out about cutting this background die twice with the last card design. I would not have thought to extend this die, but you did. Amazing how your mind works. This die set gives one a great look with less time needed to complete a finished holiday card. Sometimes I need that "quicky" card.

I love a lattice and pairing it up with the poinsettia is perfect for Christmas. Nothing says Christmas like red and it really shows of the die cuts. I don't notice that you had used this in your previous but I didn't realize that you had been cut twice, I was so captivated by it's beauty.
