One 5 x 7″ card
One 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ pattern paper (The Lake House)
Many strips of Paper Pad

Pearls PL502, SB713, Collectables CT717, Pearl Flourishes PL514, Mini paper Blooms F658
“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!”
