Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal. Are you ready for Spring? We sure are here in Michigan!! So, making a Spring project was just what I needed. For my card, I chose the Lovely Lattice stamp set, which is a sweet floral stamp available for free when you place an order for $50 or more. It really is perfect for Spring and I chose a light color combination to keep it fresh.
If you are interested to know any of the products I used in this card, I have a complete list after the Line-up at the bottom of this post.
My Secrets to Making This Lovely Lattice Project
My (almost) A6 easel card is a 1/4″ shy of the A6 dimensions so that it would fit more easily into the envelope. I hadn’t seen an easel card this size so am providing you with the measurements for this card:
- Card Base: 12″ x 4 1/4,” Easel layer: 6″ x 4 1/4″ and scored at 3″ and 6″
- Garden Impressions DSP: 4″ x 5 3/4″ (2)
- Whisper White: 3.5″ x 5.25″
Lovely Lattice Focal Image.
- The image was heat embossed in white embossing powder onto So Saffron cardstock. The flowers were colored with Stampin’ Blends very lightly to allow the color of the cardstock to come through. The effect is most “spring-y,” don’t you think? Once done, I fussy cut it out.
- The Whisper White layer was spritzed with rubbing alcohol, then run through the Big Shot in the Country Floral Dynamic embossing folder.
- The sentiment from More Than Words was heat embossed in white embossing powder, cropped with a framelit from the Rectangle Stitched die collection. Whisper White and Calypso Coral cardstock were cropped with the Stitched Ovals Framelits, then all were layered together to complete the front panel.
- The Finishing Touch was punching out a couple of the small butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP. Then, I added the pretty artisan pearls to the flowers and butterflies for a little touch of bling.
- The DSP was adhered to the inside. The sentiment from Incredible Like You was stamped in Grapefruit Grove ink, then cropped out with the Stitched Labels Framelits. The little flowers were also heat embossed and colored, then cut out with the ovals framelits. The “wishes” die was cropped twice and layered together, then adhered to the ovals. A small piece of ribbon was placed onto the inside panel, then the ovals were popped up on top.

Wow, Debbie! I don’t know which lovely detail to start with!!! LOVE the use of white embossing powder… I never remember to use that color and it is perfect for your project!!! You know how much I love the country floral texture and the Easel style fold!! Butterflies are definitely becoming a signature for you! And the “hidden” sentiment is so much fun!!! Already pinned, Sister dearest!
