Lattice in Print...

Happy Friday,

The lattice collection is featured in Die Cutting essentials which came out yesterday so I thought I would share one of the projects I made for the feature.

I used the lattice corners to make a background which is so easy as there are 4 corner dies as well as the circle and square in the corners set far easier that using one die repeatedly to make a background.

I cut the lattice into apiece of blue card using the outlines for the square and circle to cut the whole of these pieces out.

I added a sheet of white card and then cut the circle and square lattice pieces in this before adding a navy piece at the back giving a look of dimension in a flat piece.

I added the lattice flowers cut in the navy with white lattice and the with love tag using my bold numbers for the 60.

Die cutting essentials is available now at your local craft shop or newsagent!
