Lovely Lattice

I saw this technique on a card on Pinterest and was immediately intrigued!  It's actually done with the Chevron Border Punch found in the Occasions Catalog!  Paired with the new Hardwood Stamp and Petite Petals it's a garden on a card!  We have had an incredibly difficult winter this year here in Gettysburg, PA, so any flowers are appreciated!   To make the Lattice look you need two strips of paper that measure 1 1/4" X 8".  Punch your Chevron pattern out of both pieces of card stock the entire length.  Then with the chevrons pointing in opposite directions, lay one piece of card stock on top of the other and "lock in" the chevrons.  You are essentially just popping the points of the chevrons under the opposing piece down the length of the card stock.  Then you can slide each piece to get the patter you like.  Then use any adhesive to attach it to your card!  I used dimensionals for the Island Indigo card and SNAIL adhesive for the Melon Mambo card.  Here is the video tutorial:
This example uses Naturals White Card Stock and Island Indigo and Crushed Curry ink

This card uses Whisper White card stock for the lattice and Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry ink.
