A Lattice Bauble

Hi Crafter's

My second post of the evening. This time I have a card to share. A couple of weeks ago I had the Spellbinders expandable lattice dies in the shop, after I got over my cold I had a play. While playing I came up with this card.

This card started life as an experiment. I wanted to see if a technique I learned with embossing folders would be able to be adapted and used with the lattice.
First I cut a shape from a cereal  box 5 times and glued them together. The shape used in this card Spellbinders2012 Heirloom Ornament.

To have the shape cut out in the lattice you make your cutting sandwich   as follows ( I used a bigshot)  white base plate, clear plate, an A5 card folded  (A4 card folded in half) with right side inside and the lattice inside the card with the cutting side to the right side of the card, cereal box shape then clear plate.
With this technique you don't have a hole cut, with a lattice glued behind it.
Here a view in side the card ....
That's all for now. Let me know what you think I do love reading your comments.
Thank you for stopping by and I will see you again soon.  :)
