Eager for Easter - Lattice Die

Have I mentioned how much I love tulips? I didn’t get enough of my tulip-making fun the other day, so I got out my XL Two-Step Bird Punch and my Lattice Die and started playing again. I’m pretty pleased with the results, though now I’m curious to see what it would look like in other colors.

The so saffron die cut “medallion” was made by cutting out two lattices from our exclusive Lattice Die. Then I adhered them together, with the top lattice rotated 45 degrees from the bottom lattice, and then I cut off the “tips”. The center of the medallion is a one of the cool Vintage Labels from this year’s Sale-a-bration catalog, stamped in old olive, and then punched out with our scallop punch. That is one thing that really sold that Vintage Label set to me is how they coordinate so well with our punches to make great card decorations, scrapbook page embellishments and even cool gift tags and labels. Then I created the tulip using the bird’s wing and stem cut from punches made with the XL Two-Step Bird punch, adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the card some lift. I also punched, then trimmed, multiple branches with that bird punch to create the leafy wreath around that scallop punch. The final touch is the simple Easter greeting taken from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
