New Lattice Rose

I was on my demonstrator website the other day and found a video from Beth Crocker on the lattice die for the big shot.  I love the elegance of this die so I decided to watch the video.  Boy am I glad I did.  She showed a whole new way to use it.  I believe she called it a lattice rose.  Of course I had to try it.

Isn't it pretty?  I absolutely know I will use this on cards for a while.  I also love the fact that the "trash" that you have left over from the die can be used to add decoration to it.  I cut 2 Melon Mambo lattice and 1 shimmer white.  I saved the shimmer white lattice to use on another card but used the "trash" to fill in some spots and add decoration.  Here is a close up of the flower:

The trick to making this is to offset the 2 lattice pieces.  It will actually look like a star burst and could be used that way.  Instead I chose to trim off the pieces that were hanging over the edge.  I put a small amount of adhesive to hold them together and then once they were layered I used a decorative brad to secure them.  This picture did a nice job of showing the shimmer paper.  I bet though that you can see shimmer everywhere if you look close.  I mixed 5-6 drop of the frosted white shimmer paint with about 2 oz. of alcohol in a mini spray bottle.  Then I used the Color Catcher from Stampin' Up to stand the card in and spritzed the front.  It is a nice way to get the shine without the mess of glitter.

I hope you liked this card.  It is a simple one to do and can be used for any occasion.  Thanks for dropping by to take a peek.
