Lattice Frame Step Card

Finished Size: 5 ½” x 6” card

Materials:

  • Anna Griffin® Gold/Ivory Cricut Cuttlebug™ Version 3 510-398
  • Cricut Cuttlebug® 12”x5” Magnetic Cutting Mat
  • Cricut Cuttlebug® 12”x5” Embossing Mat
  • Cricut Cuttlebug® 12”x5” Plate A
  • Cricut Cuttlebug® 12”x5” Plate B (2)
  • Anna Griffin® Tool ‘n One with Multipurpose Craft Tips & Bag 457-852
  • Anna Griffin® Cuttlebug® Baroque Frame Dies Set 489-267
  • Anna Griffin® Window Frame Card Making Kit and Cutting Dies (die, butterfly embellishments, sentiment sticker) 546-217
  • Anna Griffin® Favorite Flowers III, flower embellishments
  • Anna Griffin® Craft Essential Tool Set (scissors, craft knife, ruler, paper cutter) 442-864
  • Anna Griffin® Double-Sided 48-pack Card Stock – 12″ x 12″ 568-614 – yellow card stock
  • Xyron Creative Station
  • Adhesive (tape runner)
  • Foam squares

Instructions:

  1. Cut the card base with the double-sided card stock using the card die from the Window Frame Card Making Kit.

2. Cut and emboss the yellow card stock using the Baroque Frame Die.

3. To shorten the frame, fussy cut the sides of the Baroque Frame Die card stock layer. You want it to be about 6” tall in total so that it will fit on the card correctly. Make sure there is no overlap when reattaching.

4. Cut a piece of double sided card stock to 5×7 and attach behind the frame die cut. We used the Xyron Creative Station here instead of a tape runner to evenly apply edge to edge adhesive. Use the left over sticky plastic liner from the Xyron sheet as an adhesive pick up to remove the small left over adhesive from the die cut.

5. Fussy cut around the double-sided card stock layer so that it makes a backing for the yellow card stock frame layer.

6. With a craft knife, cut out the white diamond shaped portions from the center of the card stock.

 

Assembly:

  1. Fold the double-sided die cut cardstock along scored lines to make the card base.

2. Adhere Baroque frame layer to the center of the card base.

3. Attach the flower embellishments on top of the lattice/frame layer.

4. Attach the butterflies.

5. Attach the 3d sentiment to the front of the card.

So gorgeous! On Monday we’re thrilled to bring you something many of you have asked for. Any ideas as to what it could be? Hint: coloring is involved!

Bye for now,

Anna
