Lattice and a frame....

Evening folks.... 

As I promised earlier, I thought I would fire up the old laptop and upload the project I shared with you all earlier on Facebook. 

What have you all been upto this past week or so?  Yesterday was a bit of special time spent with the hubby for breakfast, and today has been a bit hectic with an emergency run to the vets with my son's cat... Ava... she was not very well at all, but with a little bit of TLC and a couple of injections, I think she will be back to her usual mischievous self again very soon!!

I've been off up to Glasgow this past week too,  helping to promote the Tonic brand and to show how easy it is to use the dies. I was working for the lovely Mel and Mark from Crafty Devils, and had a little visit from Jodie too, which was lovely. 

The weather wasn't too bad, and the SECC was only a very short walk from where we were staying, so all was good and I didn't get rained on until the day we came home. Bonus. 

I did make quite a few samples whilst we were up there, and I will try to share as many as I can over the next few days or so... but this is the card I wanted to share with you firstly. 

The base die was the lattice circle, the largest one, and it fits perfect into a 5.75cm square card. Great for those times when you want something simple.

The insert section was one of the keepsake frames and inserts. I just simply wanted to show how well they went together. I chose burgundy and white to add a touch of elegance, and plopped a bit of black card behind the lattice to make it pop.

There were quite alot of layers on the top of the card, but with the dies, you can opt to cut the design into the base, or layer as I have done.

I hope you like the card.... it was a very quick sample, so not really much to do on this... just cut, cut and cut a little more!


  1. Glad you had a good time at the SECC, your samples from the day at Embsay are still being admired by customers as they come into the papercraft department :) Love this card and the rich colours you have chosen. Keep up the good work, you inspire so many folk!
