Fancy Lattice and Tags   Thursday, July 05, 2012
by Linda Lucas   Post Type: Card


I am back with a second card using some of Dies shown in the Summer Blog Frenzy Sneak Peeks. This time I am sharing a Baby Card, this is a special one for me as we had a special arrival in our family - I became a Great Aunty for the seventh time.  The arrival of a darling little boy, Johnny Issac was the perfect occasion to create a card using the New Dies -  if you did have not seen it already, you can see my Video Tutorial here and Beate's stunning card here,

I started by cutting out the Fancy Lattice Enhanceable Backgrounds, A2 Matting Basics A Nestabilities, Fancy Framed Tags 1 Shapeabilities and the co-coordinating insert, along with the inside of the Fancy Weave Card Creators Nestabilities- all this with one run through on the Grand Calibur Die Cutting Machine.

NOTE: With the more intricate Dies it can help add a sheet of Wax Paper (wax side down) into the Die before adding your card, this way the card slips out easily as you can see in the photo below.  The card is removed from the Die easily and the Wax Paper comes off in the same easy way.

The Fancy Lattice is attached to the brown card base using Beacon Adhesive Zip Dry Paper Glue, next the stamped, embossed and sponged image that has been cut using the Matting Basics A Nestabilities is attached to the Die cut blue card using SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Foam Tape.

 It is time to layer assemble the Fancy Framed Tags.  Both the tag, insert and the Die Cut image have been sponged using the Die as a mask, as you can see in the photo below.  The small stamped oval insert is popped up on ADHESIVES BY 3L™ foam tape and layered slightly to the left on the tag, to allow for the bow.

 The tag needs to be attached, allowing for the dimension on the image, therefore I have attached Scor-Pal® double sided tape onto the top half of the back of the tag and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ foam tape on the lower half.  As the tag is adhered, slip the top half onto the image until you can feel the double sided tape touching the lower edge of the image, then attach.

Using your scissors, make a whole through the layers of brown card and the white card it is layered onto.  At the same time, using your scissors, make a slit in the center of the bow and attached your brad through the bow and the layered card, as shown in the photo below.   With all of this completed, attach the layered card to the blue card base.  My finished card measures 10am by 15cm.

Finishing off with some Want2Scrap bling added around the outer lattice, creating a frame and bringing a softness to the card.
