Shoebox Swap

I had a great weekend.  I spent Saturday at a shoebox swap and boy did they have some great cards to share; I am looking forward to recreating some of the cards.

Thank you Rose for hosting and Cindy for inviting me.

Here is the card I made for the swap.

We had to make enough cards for 15 people.  Well, I cut 15 lattices and 

holy scraps!!!  I have never seen so many bits and pieces.

My mission this week is to figure out what to do with all these tiny pieces.  I have a couple of ideas already, I think I can make some pretty cool flowers.  Stay tuned.

But back to the card.

The card is pretty straight forward.  The only thing that may need explaining is the lattice.  I cut the lattice on the diagonal to create the wider shape. Then I adhered it to the strips of paper.

What I used:

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Pacufic Blue, Blueberry Crisp DSP
Big Shot:  Lattcie Die, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die, Lots Of Tags Stampin' Up!
Punches: Word Window
Stamp: Sweet Birthday
Embellishments: Basic Pearls Jewel Accents

 Give it a try.  Thanks for looking.


  1. I love how you used that die cut. Never thought to use it that way. Have fun with the scraps!

  2. What great use of the lattice. Very creative! TFS
