What's Trending right now in greeting cards?
Well, this lattice card is trending everywhere.
I've seen it in so many different versions. I'm not sure who the original creator is, but hats off to a lovely design.
I didn't seek out any instructions, just simply had a look and started cutting. It turned out to be very easy. This was a first attempt, and I can't say that for all the card designs I create...lol
The one thing that I have never seen the same about this card is the focal point... yes, it is usually flowers, since that makes sense to be decorating a trellis type background. However the flowers are always different, and that's the creative part. It makes the possibilities endless for when creating this card.
I chose to use the Petal Park flowers, however I dove back into some retired product for the leaves. I used the leaves from the "Sweet as a Peach" bundle from last year ( or was it the year before?).
You could use the leaves from the Petal Park bundle without a doubt. It just like the look of these tiny leaves, plus they had a die which made it quick and easy to make the pieces to make this card really stand out.
The flowers were stamped with Polished Pink Ink - I stamped off once when filling the inside of the flowers to create the 2 different shades in the flowers.
Since I have been working on some really beautiful Mother's Day cards, it seemed only fitting to choose a Mother's Day sentiment for this card.
With the new Annual Catalogue release, you are going to be hard pressed to find a Mother's Day greeting in it so be sure to keep any Mother's Day sentiments you might already have.
I'm not sure what happened there in the line up for the new Annual catalogue but lets just say that Mother's Day was on on anyone's mind I guess.
It was the first thing I looked for, and soon discovered I had better keep what I might already have. The greeting I used came from last month's Anniversary Paper Pumpkin kit. Thank goodness I did subscribe for that month.
Paper Pumpkin kits are great way to grab up some really nice greetings. I keep them all in a file folder and can search through when I need a particular greeting or sentiment.
The final touch on the card was a few glossy dots!
