Here's another card from my crafting evening with my next door neighbour. I am blessed to have a neighbour who scrapbooks and makes cards. She is my daughters age but we are good friends. She is very kind and patient with this old lady...well old enough to be her mother, anyways!
This card is quite similar to yesterdays with a few variations. I follow quite a few blogs and there are several ladies who always use a corner punch on their cards. I love that look, so tried that lattice accents on yesterday's card. I thought it was a bit "heavy looking" so for this card I die cut a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square and then took my fussy cut scissor and cut in half diagonally. I thought that looked too wide so one by one I ran then through the big shot again, recutting the smooth edge I had just made and turning it into the match for the other sides. A little stickles and it was done.
I now had 2 teensy slivers that I had just cut off so I stickled them as well and glued them on the top and bottom of the stripey piece that sits on the doily. Waste not want not!!! I like the look of those slivers!.
