Lattice Card

Hi again everyone

Well- we  didn't get to go on our  balloon ride again today as it was too windy again! I think it's going to be a long time before we actually find a day that's suitable at this rate. So - I decided to do a bit of crafting instead.

This card was made from an SGV file and cut with SCAL on my Cricut. I
bought the file from Sue Playing with Paper's webpage. The file cuts a card with a latticed front and leaves  a square mat in the centre. It's alovely file and I think I'm going to use it a lot - I have already thought of several different ways  I can use this particular card front.

For this particular card I backed the latticed front with a piece of blue and white  shaded vellum that I have had in my stash for a long time. I then made a flower using the same method that I used in my tutorial further down  this blog, although this one is a bit bigger than the little ones I made before and it's very three dimensional.

I edged the petals with  pale blue stickles to give them a frosted appearance and to pick up the blue of the backing paper and I also edged the sentiment with the same colour.

My computer seems to be on a go slow today and it has taken me ages to upload this card so, although it hasn't reproduced as well as I would have liked in the picture, I think I'm going to leave it as it is  and hope you can use your imagination a bit. lol

This is also the first time I have used the  new Watermark that I bought from Whimsy stamps to go with the signature below that came with it.

Hope you like my efforts of today and that you have all had a lovely Bank Holiday Monday.

Hi Yvonne, sorry to hear your balloon flight was cancelled, ours was too! Really thought we'd be going this time! But too windy. Fingers crossed for the next time! Glad you managed to do some crafting instead x
