It’s time to SPRING into Tara’s Friday Mashup Challenge # 154.
1. Create a Spring Card.
2. Use Scattered embossing by using a stylus to selectively emboss portions of an embossing folder.
3. Mash It Up with a Spring Card with Scattered embossing!
I was in Easter mode this week for my classes so I thought I would share one since Spring brings Easter with it. I am sure you have been seeing a lot of Chevron Punch lattices over blogland. Well, I tried my hand at one or two. You just punch a continuous line of chevrons out of a 8 1/2″ by 1 1/4″ strip of card stock. Repeat with another piece. Then you lay one on top of the other with the chevrons going in opposite directions. Then simply interlace them and gently spread to create the lattice. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet for the leaves and the Petite Petals for the flowers on this card. I also used the lovely retired SU set Crosses of Hope. The Hardwood Stamp is the perfect background for the lattice and the cross, don’t you think?
I also made one with the Woodgrain background stamp that has a finer line image on it. I used the Bird Builder punch of the leaves on this one.
After making both of them…
I think I would use the Hardwood background with the Bird Builder leaves
on my next card…
I sure hope you play along with the Friday Mashup this week. As you can see, I did not mash it up this week, will you? I would love to see it!
I love these cards! But I have to agree that the leaves using the bird builder punch are more delicate and work better in this case. I will be caseing this card. Good thing I just purchased the bird builder punch!
Beautiful card Cindy! The flowers along the lattice are just so pretty. I do like both the wood backgrounds you used!
I think both of your cards are beautiful! I love the idea of using the Chevron Punch to create the lattice! Great idea!
