Lovely Lattice & Itty Bitty Greetings Card


I love getting up early and starting my day with my coffee, stamping a card, and enjoying the quiet. It's very relaxing and sure beats a hectic, rushed morning. It's almost like a creative meditation. The card I made today uses the "Lovely Lattice" Sale-a-bration set. I did quite a bit of fussy cutting, paper-piecing the flowers and leaves on my card...


If you've never tried paper-piecing before, you'll definitely have to give it go. It's one of my favourite things to do on cards. Simply stamp your image onto Designer Series Paper (for my card I used scrap bits of Garden Impressions DSP) and then cut out. Stamp the same image onto Whisper White card stock and then glue the cut DSP pieces to fill in.


Before I glued on the cut flowers and leaves, I added a wash of colour to the stamped image on the Whisper White card stock.  Smoky Slate and Pool Party to the 'lacey' background, Old Olive for the stems and leaves and then colours on the flowers to match the Designer Series Paper.

I wasn't sure which sentiment I was going to use on my card, when suddenly "Mother's Day" popped into my head. I know it's not going to be Mother's Day until May, but I really thought the flowers image was ideal for a "Happy Mother's Day". So Mom, if you're reading this, at least your gift will be a surprise... ;-)


To finish the card I added a couple of pearls, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a spritz of Champagne Shimmer Mist Paint. I really love how today's card turned out!

  1. I, too, love early morning coffee and stamping. After working afternoons and not going to bed until 12:30 a.m., I hopped out of bed at 7 a.m. to get to my card-making. Using a SU sympathy set to make 12 sympathy cards.
