A Lattice Cross

5 Apr

"...not as I will, but as you will."

Card Supplies:

  • Stamps: None
  • Paper: Naturals White; Whisper White
  • Inks:  None
  • Accessories:  Big Shot; Square Lattice Embossing Folder ; Lattice Bigz Die; Stampin’ Dimensionals; SNAIL; Paper Snips; Large Pearl Basic Jewels

To create this card:

  1. Cut 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of Naturals White card stock (#102316, $ 7.50) in half, creating a sheet that is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2′.
  2. Fold half sheet in half, using Bone Folder (#102300, $$6.95), creating a card front that is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. If you prefer, score first using the Simply Scored tool (#122334, $29.95).
  3. Cut additional Naturals White card stock to 5-1/4″ x 4″.
  4. Adhere Stampin’ Dimensionals to each corner and the middle of the 5-1/4″ x 4″ sheet of Naturals White card stock; adhere to card front.
  5. Cut Whisper White card stock (#100730, $8.50) to 5″ x 3-3/4″.
  6. Run through Big Shot (#113439, $99.95), using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#119976, $7.95).
  7. Use SNAIL (#104332, $6.95) to adhere to top layer of Naturals White card stock.
  8. Cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of Whisper White card stock in quarters. Take one-quarter sheet and run through the Big Shot, using the Lattice Bigz Die (#115958, $21.95).
  9. Once you’ve got the lattice cut out, look for the cross in the middle of the lattice. See pink highlighted cross in photo below.
  10. Use Paper Snips (#103579, $9.95) — the BEST little scissors in the world, by the way — to cut out your cross. I chose to make mine only 3 sections long but you can make yours 4, if you want.
  11. Dot Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive (#110755, $3.95) — my new favorite adhesive — to the back of the cross and adhere to Whisper White lattice-embossed layer.
  12. Finally, embellish the cross with a single large pearl (#125577, $4.95, Occasions Mini).

Until we meet again…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

And a blessed Easter!
