Tuesday Tutorial - Grateful Lattice

Hi Everybody,

Todays tutorial is another of those that will give you two cards for the price of one .. and no waste at all.  I have created two cards one gold and the other silver and just by varying the colors and the way you add in flowers, ribbons and pearls will create a new look for you each time.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Instructions:

With die #7 from Matting basics A create two card bases (Please remember that #1 is always the smallest die)
With die #7 from Matting Basics B and the Grateful Lattice die cut out one panel.
Carefully remove the Lattice work from the die leaving all the waste pieces in place. 

Trim away the side bits of the Lattice panel to tidy the edges.
Cover the waste pieces with double sided adhesive sheet and sprinkle with glitter of your choice

I used a fine silver glitter for mine and pressed it on to the adhesive sheet making sure that it is all covered.
Continuing with the silver panel I have got my base as a Hinged card  and to this I have cut a smaller silver panel and another in white and embossed this one.

Layer them all together using foam tape under the  Lattice panel. 

Wrap these with silver ribbon before adding to your base card
Add the full Lattice piece to some gold card using foam tape around the edges of the die cut and another in the centre to support the sentiment

Again I have added in some gold ribbon around the layers before adding them to the base card

With the Elegant Oval I have cut one gold and one silver oval from die #3 


Then I stamped and embossed my sentiments onto white card and cut them with die # 2

I have varied the orientation of these ovals to add another difference to my cards.

I added in my flowers on the gold card to frame the sentiment along the top right corner

I used a selection of Roses in gold and ivory, with  Tuscany rosebuds and gypsophilia  and all have been sparkled with fine clear glitter 
On the silver one I have added them to the bottom of the oval and used camellia, tulips, small rosebuds and gypsophilia 

And there you have two lovely cards ready to send and no waste at all from your precious cardstock.  

The same ingredients have been used for both cards but they look completely different 

Look at other dies in your collection and see if you can repeat this tutorial with them.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  20. This tutorial is awesome! Love both cards, love the way you used the waste and changed the orientation to make the cards look different. I'm so in awe of your talent. I'm also excited because I happen to have all the dies you used so I plan to create my version of your lovely cards. I cannot wait until I am finally able to craft again! Your cards make me miss it even more!

  41. Hi Christina, thank you for your very interesting tutorial. I don't have the lattice die but guess it's one for my list. Good to see that the negative of the lattice makes such a lovely card too. X

  43. Thank you for the tutolrial. These cards are so pretty. I love the dies and the colors and everything about them! Gorgeous.

  44. Always a pretty technique Christina; I am half afraid to try this. Of course, if I want all the pieces to remain in the die that is when they will all fly out. If I want them to come out, they will stay in. Yin and yang. I am going to get brave and try your lovely technique, I've only got a sheet of paper and 5 minutes to lose.
