Using the Last Lattice

       I've already made 3 cards from one pass through my Big Shot with the Lattice die.  I cut 3 colors of cardstock at once then mixed and matched the pieces for 2 inlaid cards and used the Crumb Cake main lattice die cut as a stencil.  The leftover sponged through lattice is the basis for my first card.

      I loved the mix of blues and greens on the lattice-I had to sponge a bit of color onto the ends which had been covered by my mask, but I think I matched the colors pretty well. I sponged through some dry wall mesh on the bg for a bit more depth. This card uses this week's sketch from with the elements switched from the right to the left and since my square (lattice) was bigger I started out a bit lower.

 Here's the last of my "scrap" pieces from the inside of the die cuts.  I laid the previous blue lattice piece onto my White piece and used  a pencil to trace the holes. I glued my pieces in place adding some 1/4" circle centers.  I then embossed (actually de-bossed) the whole piece together for the inlaid look.  I stitched this onto a Cherry base and embossed my sentiment in Pewter.
