I am absolutely in love with the new Creative Expressions Stitched Lattice Frame Die, I think its hugely versatile, working for both male and female cards and so many occasions from beautiful Wedding cards to Sympathy cards.
I went for the 'pretty, girly' look for this card, I started with the white Lattice die cut that I did at Pat's today, I then tried it against a few different colour backgrounds but loved the Pale Green Glittery card, so I decided on a pale pink and green theme.
I attached the Lattice die cut, that had been cut using the second largest (middle) frame and the centre lattice piece and added mounting foam, mounted onto to the larger frame, cut using the largest and smallest frame dies from the set. This gives good dimension to the card, I added plenty of Cosmic Shimmer Glue to the frame as I was sticking it to glitter card, then pressed firmly all the way around the frame.
I used Creative Expressions Trailing Ivy die, to create some foliage out of some of the green glitter card, I hot glued them into place and then played with some Silk and pearl flowers to create a spray around then top corner of the card, I needed something else and paper flowers just didn't work so I cut up a gorgeous Flower Trim from Amanda's Shop added a pearl to the centres and used them for little flowers here and there, I threaded some on to green 0.4mm wire to create stems too, a few pink stamens and a couple of little off cuts of pink pearl string made into little loops finished the design.
I cut two different size centres from Creative Expressions Scandinavian Collection to mount my Sentiment on. I added tiny green pearls to all of the centres of the lattice work.
I hope you like my card xx
