Spellbinders – Floral Lattice

Hello!

I have the honor of making a card using a beautiful die from Spellbinders today.  The Side Floral Panel die is a single die that cuts one side panel in a flourished floral design.  I used this die and did partial cutting to form a tri-fold gate card.

Floral Lattice Trifold

I started out with a piece of white cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 12″.  I partial cut one side, lining it up as straight as I could.  If you’re careful and don’t accidentally cut off the entire panel, you’ll get a score line where it should’ve cut all the way through. I used that line to measure 4 1/4″ to the next point and lined up my die again to create the other panel. There will be a bit to trim off the top and bottom when you’re done.  Once the gate fold was achieved, I used Copic markers to color the vines and flowers on the die-cut panels.

Colors used:  YG0000, RV00, RV63, G12, G21, G82

I secured the card closed using a simple ribbon.  The message is visible through the die cut panels but can been fully seen once the panels are opened up. I lined the inside of the card with some Smoky Slate cardstock and embossed a sentiment from a Pretty Pink Posh Set called Encouraging Greetings.

I think the alcohol ink bleed from the front panels gives it some soft color, but if you don’t like that, you could also die cut two extra panels and glue them on the backside of the side panels to give it a cleaner look while reinforcing them for added strength.

I hope you liked this card.  It’s definitely a delicate one – but I love that about it!  Thanks for stopping by today!

XOXO,

  1. Caly, this is a GORGEOUS card with this stunning die! It makes such an elegant card, and I could easily see it for a wedding card. I just love how it can be colored so beautifully and then opened with just the sweetest sentiment! I actually love the soft bleed of the colors on the back. It’s perfect, sweet Caly! You are on a real roll!! Have a beautiful weekend, precious friend! Hugs and love! xoxo
