Cake & Lattice

I had so much fun playing with my Lattice Bigz Die. I received it about a month ago, but hadn't used it yet. My card base is Basic Black with a Crushed Curry inset. Using my Big Shot I cut out a textured Rich Razzleberry Lattice shape then glued that onto a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper. I decided to play a bit and cut out another Lattice shape using textured Crushed Curry. I took the pieces you would normally throw away and glued them into the outer edges of the Rich Razzleberry die cut. I stamped the sentiment using Melon Mambo and framed it with the Great Friend framed stamped in Rich Razzleberry and popped it up using Stampin' Dimensionals onto the middle. For some fun bling, I used more scraps from the Rich Razzleberry and glued them on like diamonds. Into the middle of those, I set some Fire Square Rhinestones. I'd love to know what you think....

So cool! I love how you used the little leftovers from the die to decorate the bottom. The bling in the center of them was a great idea! Home run Patti!
