Control Freaks Sharing Big Shot Creations!
February 19, 2012
Welcome to the Control Freaks February 2012 Tour (officially starts February 20th). We are thrilled to have you join us today. Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, if you started in the middle of the tour you may have just come from fellow freaker, Patty Bennett's blog.
Our theme for this month is: The Cutting Edge - Projects Created Using Diecuts in the BigShot
Lattice Die Garden Card & Box#2
Today's project was inspired by a dollar store find that I've had sitting on my desk for quite sometime, that featured a lattice garden image. So I got out the Lattice Die and got cutting with my Big Shot!
I'm just tickled with the way this turned out. The best thing was when my husband said, "I really like it because I can see where you were inspired. But yours looks better." Ah-that was sweet of him! He's the best.
The greeting is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set and was punched with the XL Oval punch. Then matted onto a die cut from Lots of Tags (set of 4).
The flowers were created with the Fun Flowers Die (Melon Mambo & Rose Red cardstock) and Island Floral Die (Peach Parfait & Tangerine Tango). I used the Faux Suede technique to break up the fibers and create suede texture layers

The box was created with the Box #2 Die and the XL Oval punch to create a window. Again the Lots of Tags Die was added around the window to coordinate with the card, along with the flower accent.
