Fancy Fold lattice for JAI #443


 Happy Friday everyone and welcome back 😊We've had another hot week here in Melbourne - 41 degrees around here early on in the week and some hot nights too. So it's been a case of go out early and then stay inside keeping an eye on the aircon for the rest of the day. We did manage to get to the beach at the weekend though and that was fun and helped keep everyone cool 😀

And it's time for our new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week's theme to Choose Two of the three given options was chosen by me so I hope you enjoy it! You can pick two out of Embossing Paste, Colouring or Sequins to use in your projects and the design team have come up with a fabulous and varied array to inspire you so I hope you can pop on over and take a peek and hopefully join us!

I actually struggled to come up with a starting idea this week until a friend requested a card for a milestone birthday. I chose Colouring and Sequins for my elements and it seemed the perfect time to make a Fancy Fold card. 

Having seen a number of these Double Easel cards recently on Pinterest I decided to give one a try. I was especially inspired by Patty Bennet, Shauna Mikuliak and my lovely JAI Teamie, Di Barnes. Instead of reading instructions tho I just put two black card bases together instead of cutting the front card smaller but it still seems to work ok.😀

The main image is the Lovely Lattice stamp set which is one of the free stamps available to earn during Saleabration. It's Coloured using a mixture of Blends and Copics before being fussy cut and then there's a sprinkling of Sequins.

The happy birthday sentiment is from the new Well Said bundle and it's cut from White card stock and coloured with blends and also covered generously with Fine Tip Glue which gives a lovely shine.
