Lattice Circle...

Happy Thursday,

Another day another die I bought but hadn't used till this week!  This time I am using a Tonic lattice circle die that just jumped out at me as soon as i saw it ( you all know my love of a lattice!)  so it had to go in my basket!

I stared by cutting the largest circle in the set into a piece of white card I then backed this with peach card ( with foam tape of course!)






Next I cut the next circle in the set with the outline die thats included in the set in white again and backed it with the peach.  For the final layer I repeated this with the last 2 dies in the set.  I foam mounted each layer into the centre of the preceding one.









I added a large pearl swirl from my stash across the front of the card.I then cut a set of butterflies using 2 Dovecraft dies I bought as part of a job lot on eBay!  I cut these in peach and in velum layering them over the pearl swirl.  I also added 3mm pearls in the centre of the butterflies to add dimension.




I made up the card as shown using CE pearl corners and layers of the white and peach.


Enjoy...

  30. Wow I am in love - to say this is stunning John, is an understatement. I love Sue Wilson dies but you have opened my eyes to some other stunning dies in the last week or so. I am now off to see if these dies are still available lol. You are determined to keep me in the workhouse.

    Lots of hugs Helen xxx
