I am THRILLED with this new lattice die from Rubbernecker!

Prepare yourselves, because I will be using this brand new lattice die a lot – isn’t it GORGEOUS? And just look at that luscious tropical bloom over it – isn’t it fabulous? Did you spot that the “tropical bloom” was made with the poinsettia die? That’s right!  Rubbernecker released four new cover dies last week and I love them all.  I linked all four of them below and just in case you missed it check out my pretty poinsettia card using the new Diamond with Stitch cover.

The Card Base and Lattice Cover

  • Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and the cover die.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame.
  • Apply tiny pop dots to several key spots on the back of the lattice.  Pro Tip:  Adding pop dots to the inner sections of the cover will keep it from collapsing in on the card base.  
  • Attach the lattice frame to the card base.

The Flower 

  • Use light pink cardstock to cut a full section of the poinsettia die and cut an addition section of the largest flower section.
  • Apply touches of Posey ink to the flower petals using a mini applicator.  
  • Place the flower sections face up on the molding pad and roll over the petals using a large round stylus to form and push them up.  Pro Tip: Pushing all the petals up from the front side allows the flower to look very different from a poinsettia.
  • Assemble the flower sections and attach them together using glossy accents making sure to offset each section.
  • Once the glue is set place the flower back on the molding pad and use your paper piercer to punch a hole right in the center of the flower.  Note:  It probably would have been better if I had created a hole on each flower layer individually.  Live and learn!
  • Insert the stamen stems through the hole and secure them on the back of the flower with double stick tape.  
  • Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of the flower and attach it to the card bae.

The Ivy

  • Use green cardstock to cut several ivy sections.
  • Place the ivy sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each leaf using the leaf tool.
  • Apply glossy accents to the end of the ivy stems and tuck and attach them under the flower.  Pro Tip:  I do a dry test fit of each ivy section and trim the branches as necessary before I apply the glue and attach.  a detailed lattice die used on a DIY greeting card with a large die cut flower all made using card making dies from Rubbernecker

I get asked all the time about how I mail my dimensional flower cards.  I thought I would mention here that I use crystal clear boxes to protect them and place the box in a padded envelope to mail.  Yes….it is a bit pricey but I only send these to close family and friends so it’s worth it to me.  I’ve linked them below if you want to check them out.

I love how the shading on the petals adds so much depth to the flower and especially that I can use the poinsettia die set to make a different flower.

I can see this lattice die being used so many ways – its beautiful, geometric design with those fine details on all the pieces take this from a basic element to something extra special. Picture all the times you’ve used a lattice die cut on your projects and picture this one in its place. And now go grab one for yourself!
