Genevieve Says:

“Today, I’d like to share with you a beautiful lattice card!”

 

1-    Cut an opening 2  7/8¨  wide and 4¨  long into the front of a piece of card stock, as well as into a piece of patterned paper (Make sure the pattered paper is a few mm’s smaller than the card stock in size).

2-    Cut quite a few ¼” wide  x 6.5″ long strips from a different type of patterned paper than your card. For this card I used 18 strips.

3-    On the outside of the window, begin by sticking the lattice strips diagonally in all one direction. (I found it helpful to start across the center and go from there)

4-    Begin the second layer by weaving the lattice strips in an alternating over/under pattern, again starting with the center strip. Make sure you do the opposite under/over with subsequent strips. This will give it a true weave. Trim off all overlapping tails. Your card should look like this :

5-    Stick now the pattern paper on the front of your card.

6-    Stick also an attractive frame for a beautiful finish!

7-    Now Decorate your card with different collectables.

8-    Decorate also the inside of your card with a pattern paper and the various embellishment.

 

“Voila! Happy scrapping!”
