Cricut Lattice Card topper and folded flowers



These are both simple, but versatile files. The first is a lattice card topper, the lattice part goes over most of the card, but I left part blank for stamping or ribbon. It is done all in George and baby bug compatible. The vine is on the second page of the same file, it is home accents, but could easily be left off if you wanted to use something from another cartridge. The second freebie file for today is a fold over flower. I love these because they look like the ones I make with frosting for cakes....ummmm, cake. The flower is make with Plantin, it includes 4 flowers and 4 leaves. I always do flowers in odd numbers, but I put 4 flowers on the file because I usually mess one up. To make the flowers, twist and fold each petal at 90 degree angle (see photo below). Thanks for looking, enjoy!

I'm cutting this card as I post. I've made trellis cards with flowers, but I like your flowers and topper better than I like my own.


I agree with you on the copyright. I have several short stories and novellas copyrighted. At $40 each now, I doubt that the people who say they have a copyright actually have one. It's not impossible for several people to develop the same idea independently.
