Hi everyone Pam here today.  do you ever look at a die and think, could this be used in a different way! this is how I came about to use this Poppystamp  "Side Lattice Cutout" . 


I used this border die as a background for my floral  display of  "Delicate Dogwoods" &  "Hampstead  Stem", it can be made as large as you wish, frame made with Memory Box. Open Studio.  "Stitched Oval Layers".


I have put black dots around the four holes! you need to see the edge your card through these holes!  


This is the reverse side after I cut the border, can you see the edge of the die, this is how you cut your card, there will be no card between these diamonds, so you create a continuous background.  hope you can understand me. lol.


 I stamped a sentiment from Poppystamps clear stamp set "Hope and Thanks, onto "Stitched main street Tags" also used "Dogwood Blossom Corner"..  Open Studio. Grosgrain Ribbons..  

Embossing a folder from my stash.

Pearls with Martha Stewart Micro Beads, flower centre . 

Look at your die collection, you`ll be surprised how many ways to use one die.

Thank you for stopping by & happy crafting.. Pam x




Beautiful card. Very clever background.

What a clever idea and thanks for the instructions too and you made such a pretty card love the colours and all the details thanks for sharing.

Pam, You are one of the most talented design team members and I look so forward to each and every one of your designs. You have a gift. Thank you so much for sharing that gift with all of us! On this card specifically, do you have any recollection of what name or brand the embossing folder is?? I haven't fallen in love with one that much in ages! Totally conforms with my "design eye" as well. Thank you again for being you. Your help is so greatly appreciated!

beautiful card Pam. thanks for sharing your techniques and designs.

Beautiful card Pam. Please please do a video on how to make a repeat pattern of that narrow lattice die to make it wider. My mind doesn't can't work it out without "seeing"it. Your cards are fabulous
