Pretty Pink Lattice

Hi Everybody,

Before I tell you about the card I need to tell you something first....

The Bow Makers that I have added to "My Shop" are going very well but I have kind of shot myself in the foot with the P&P

I didn't realise that they were quite as heavy as they are and so I have not added enough to cover the cost.

The first ones have gone out this morning and I have paid the extra postage to get them on the way to you.

If you have already ordered yours then I will honor the postage that has been charged ... but if you have yet to order one then I am so sorry  but I have had to increase the postage.

They are still a very good price though and I hope it won't put you off buying them and thank you to those who have already ordered.

Now onto the card....  This is quite a large card at 8 1/2 x 6 1/2 " but it has been made very simply.  The base card is white and has been embossed and the pink Grateful  Lattice has been added to the top.

The flowers are rolled from the Spiral Blossoms dies and a silver bead placed in the centre of each.

The top part of the card is two of the Grand Decorative Circles layered together then cut in half.

One half is added to the top part of the card and the other half has been turned into an easel for the back of the card to display it.

The Diamante Flourish is from Want2Scrap  and the trim is some that I bought from the local fabric shop for 10p a metre ....needless to say I bought loads!

And last but not least .... one of the winners of the Wild Orchid Flowers has emailed me to tell me that she has now received her prize and is highly delighted with it.  

Hugs xx


  1. Love your card Christina. Also wanted to say thanks for the tip about using talc for die cutting. It works a treat, even on intricate dies, and you can actually get a number of cuts through before you need to re-talc. ( I borrowed a die from a friend so I was cutting a lot!) I always used the inside of the cornflakes pack for cheapness, but this is even better. Brilliant! Thanks a lot. Christine x

  2. Really pretty card and I love the lattice and the idea of using the half circles for the easel. I thought the bow maker would be a bit heavy to post especially to over here in Australia.

  3. OMG Christina, This so pretty. Can't wait to case it sometime. You do such wonderful creations and they so inspire me. Thank You for sharing your talent.
