Lattice Edged Cards

I have more lattice edged cards to share. 




This one has the lattice edge around three sides. I added one of my detailed butterflies and my tattered flower & pretty flower combinations. The butterfly and flower cut files are available in my Etsy shop.


It still needed something else but I knew I could not hide the edges of a ribbon and a bow would be too much. So I gathered some white seam binding in the middle and topped it off with a row of pearls. I showed how to gather the seam binding on this post.



Since you can see the other side of the card through the lattice I added a little ink to the front edges.

When I was making the cross and lattice edged mat for my other card, I made an extra set (well, ok...I made a mistake in my measurements the first time...but hey, why waste good die cuts...LOL)

I added a seam binding flower and added  a pearl.
You can download the free cut files for the cross from  this post.

But I was not through with my lattice edged files.
I had to make a card that had the lattice on both sides of the card.



This one is simple but all that cut work adds a great touch.
All I added was a mat, some patterned paper, and a caption.

You can download the "hello" script caption here.

One more thing to share...
I had to make a box to fit the card I made in the last post.


I used the lattice mat and one of my detailed butterflies to decorated the gift box I made.
I show how to make the box on this video and the cut files for the box can be purchased here.

The entire Lattice Edged Design Package is available here.
