This workshop shows how to make this framed embossed card using the Sue Wilson shadow boxes collection ~ stitched lattice frame along with the Sue Wilson delicate garden frame die as well as the Creative Expression large blossom embossing folder.
The fronds die & flower die have been used with some vellum to create the delicate leaves and flowers. The some Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA glue added to the centre of the flowers create a faux pearl effect in the centre of the flower.
Some of the Cosmic Shimmer diamond frost has been used behind the `Just Because ` sentiment to give a sparkle look and to finish off the project.

Step by Step Instructions
Step 1. This workshop shows you how to make the lattice panel card using the Creative Expressions spring shades collection by John Lockwood paper pad and the Sentimentally Yours blossom 8″ x 8″ paper pad along with the Sue Wilson shadow boxes collection ~ stitched lattice frame dies. Also needed for the project are the Sue Wilson delicate fronds die, the Noble double pierced rectangle dies, the delicate garden die , the olive branch die and the ornate frame ~ just because frame die.
Step 2. Take a sheet of the Foundations rich plum card and also a sheet of dark purple from the Sentimentally Yours blossom 8″ x 8″ paper pad along and a patterned and co-ordinating paper from the Creative Expressions spring shades collection by John Lockwood paper pad. All these papers and card blend perfectly together and make it easy to put together a colour palette to suit your project.
Step 3. Add the 2 outer stitched dies from the Sue Wilson shadow boxes collection ~ stitched lattice frame dies onto the darker plain paper from the Creative Expressions spring shades collection by John Lockwood paper pad. Then add the lattice die and the next size up frame onto the lighter shade paper from the same pad. Cut and then emboss the dies through the Grand Calibur machine.
Step 4. Now cut another frame in the darker paper using the outer stitched die and the 3rd size down die to make a thicker frame. Retain the solid inner shapes for another project.
Step 5. Cut a large pierced frame in the light patterned paper using the Sue Wilson Noble double pierced rectangle die. Lay the 2 frames on a piece of the rich plum card leaving a border all the way around the edge of the paper. Now score down the edge of the card and add another piece of card to the tab and before trimming off the excess to make the larger base card suitable for this project.
Step 6. Use some of the Tim Holtz dusty concord ink on a Creative Expressions smoothie and just distress the edges of the patterned paper.
Step 7. Use some foam tape to attach the pierced rectangle patterned paper to the base card. Either use the frames as is or take the frames and …….
Step 8. …….run them through the die cutting machine using the Creative Expressions large rambling blossoms embossing folder. Repeat the process on the smaller frame too.
Step 9. Add some of the Tim Holtz dusty concord ink on a Creative Expressions smoothie and distress the edges and embossed areas of the frames.
Step 10. Add some foam tape on the reverse of the frame and add the frames onto the base card. Use foam tape on each layer of paper and on the frames for added dimension. Place the wider embossed frame down onto the patterned panel before adding the thinner frame over the top.
Step 11. Here you have a nice layered look to the card.
Step 12. Add some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue to the reverse of the lattice panel.
Step 13. Before placing the lattice frame into the embossed frame position.
Step 14. Select the delicate fronds die, the delicate garden die, the olive branch die and the ornate frame ~ just because frame die. Please note the far right die was not used in this project as the photo suggests.
Step 15. Here a piece of self adhesive sheet has been added on the reverse of a piece of vellum and then run through the die cutting machine. This will need maybe 3 runs through to get the needed cut but it`s worth it as it`s not something that could be cut by hand.
Step 16. Remove the backing from the reverse of the die cut panel and stick the frame over the lattice frame and onto the paper. Press firmly down onto the vellum to ensure the frame is stuck in place.
Step 17. Cut the fronds leaves and the small flowers from the delicate garden frame set in some vellum. Also cut the `just because` sentiment and the solid die from the matching die set with some self adhesive sheet behind the solid frame shape of vellum.
Step 18. Repeat the cutting in the vellum on the frond dies and the small flower dies too. Why not fold the vellum in half so you get twice as many die cut shapes as the vellum cuts with ease.
Step 19. Place the flower on the back of a piece of cut`n`dry foam or in the palm of your hand and use a ball tool to roll in a circular motion around the centre of the flowers as this will shape the flower nicely.
Step 20. Now select the largest and next size down flowers and add some of the gold Adirondack dabber around the edges of the flower.
Step 21. Add a small drop of the Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA glue to make a faux pearl effect.
Step 22. Make 3 loops in the Creative Expressions light orchid satin ribbon and then tie a knot in the centre to make the bow. Also make a bow in the light natural twine.
Step 23. Place the vellum fronds behind the twine and bow using a small amount of the Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue. Let the leaves fall loosely at the end of the leaves as this adds a softness to the end result.
Step 24. Remove the backing off the rectangle vellum piece and place some Cosmic Shimmer diamond frost ~ frosty dawn over the sticky area. Press the particles into the adhesive sheet and tap away the excess back into the tray.
Step 25. Swipe some purple ink over the `Just Because ` sentiment piece (a promarker works well) before adding some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue over the back of the sentiment piece.
Step 26. Press the sentiment piece onto the diamond frost panel and use some solid objects to press down firmly over the sentiment as it will help the piece take to the rough area below.
Step 27. Quickly you will be left with a soft sentiment panel with matching colours to fit in with the project.
Step 28. Add some leaves cut from the Spellbinders peony die set and then arrange the small vellum flowers over the knot of the bow.
Step 29. Here is the finished project with the soft vellum accents to carry the theme through the project.
Step 30. The sparkle from the diamond frost just allows the sentiment to be caught with your eye.
Step 31. Just another angle of the flower and bow cluster set on the lattice frame.
