Blue Lattice...

Happy Monday,

One of my favourite cards using the Lattice Background die that I love so much!






















I cut the lattice section twice, once in periwinkle and once again in bright white foundation card.  I then offset these to make the argyle pattern and added a frame, using the stitched rectangles in the set, in the bright white.



Next I cut the gillian die in white and backed it with blue studding it with pearls.  I cut the lace edged leaves and added these before adding the requisite poppies.  For the poppies I cut each size die rice and edged them with Frosted Sky colour cloud blending ink with a mini smoothie.  I shed the petals and made up the flowers using different sized petals for each flowers.  I cut the centres, coloured them with the same colour cloud and shed these before adding them in the centre with a pearl.

I embossed a large panel with the floral brocade embossing folder and highlighted the embossing with Pearl Lustre metallic gilding polish.  A few more layers of whiote and periwinkle, pearl corners and stick on pearls and finished.

Enjoy...

  39. Good afternoon John,
    i like when you make cards like this as they look so intricate but are so acheiveable by all. Now although i don't have these lattice dies, i do have others that i could use and the pansies i think make this a card that could go to our male partners and friends as well as our female ones. It is a gorgeous card John in your favourite colour but shows up all the detail to perfection. Thank you flower for a fantastic card that is so useful for so many occasions.
    love and crafty hugs
