How to make a Lattice Window Card - Video Tutorial

Hi everyone! I recently posted quite a few lattice window cards and these were my first experiments with them. I also won some blog challenges for these cards of mine. One such win was at the Lulupu blog and I was invited to be the GD on their blog. So I made a video tutorial on how to make lattice window cards. There are many tutorials available on the net and each one has their own style. I have tried to showcase my style and how make these type of cards. Click here to view my GD post at Lulupu blog.

This is my first ever attempt on making a video tutorial, so kindly bear any kind of misses. Also please pardon the bad lighting and my badly abused craft mat. My husband pointed that out later :)

I did not get time to take pics side by side so I don't have a pictorial. Here are the pics of the completed card.

Thanks for dropping by. Do share your frank comments on how the video turned out to be.

Triangle Front Card - Glitter Overload

Hi. Today I am sharing another triangle front card.....finally a little break from lattice cards :) For this card, I used a stencil from Pie Lane for the center motif. I laid the stencil on the card front and applied a thick coat of glue over it. Then I sprinkled the glitter generously over it. After removing the excess glitter, I got a light coat of glitter in the required area. I was not happy with the result, so I added another coat of glue and glitter over it.

At first, the central design was all that I intended to do on this card,  but then I wanted to play a bit more with the glitter, so I went ahead and added more lines at the blue base. For this look, I stuck double sided tape on the card base and sprinkled glitter all over it. For the extra bling, I added some flat silver gems to the card.

Black Lattice Window Card

Hey guys! This is another card in the series of lattice cards that I have been making in the last couple of days. This time I wanted a red and black combo. The red poppy flower goes pretty well with the black backdrop. I got this digi from the net and colored it using Faber Castell color pencils. It was a bit tacky to fussy cut this, as it have many closed spaces which had to be cut-out with a craft knife. Instead of adhering it with 3D tape, this time I glued it directly on the lattice frame. The sentiment is heat embossed and the stamp set is from TPC.

Lattice Window Card - Blooming Flowers

Hey there... as you know these days I am going crazy experimenting with different lattice cards, so here I am with another one. Here, instead of weaving the lattice, I have used a die cut which I purchased from Nupur's store. The frame of course is handcut as I dnt own any die cutting machine.

The stamp set used here is from Ujjwal which she destashed recently. I have stamped, fussy cut and distressed these flowers and leaves. The flourish die-cut is also distressed using Forest Moss DI. That's all for today. Have a great day!

Framed Flowers

Hi All. Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Today I am sharing a card wherein I tried making a frame with some paper cutting and punching. I used a pre-embossed sheet to make the frame. Then I weaved the ribbon onto the frame by punching holes at various positions. Punched the edges with an MS punch.

The image is from Beccy's place. I printed and then colored it using Faber Castell watercolor pencils. Added some pearls on 4 corners to finish my card.
