Joy to the World!

I decided I needed to tweak this technique so I put the braid/lattice fold in the center of the card.  I used a piece of designer paper (double sided awesomeness!) to create an interesting focal point.  You can find a video tutorial on how to create the braid/lattice fold by CLICKING HERE.

  1. What a fabulous card! I used to make cards - I can't wait to be able to make them again once my Littles are Bigger :) Rhondda

    1. Thanks for your comment, Rhondda. It's an easy and fun card to make. Enjoy those little ones...they grow up fast. Be sure to scrapbook the memories along the way :)
