by Kelly Acheson

Create a latticed card with a few simple cuts and folds.

Supplies

  • Cardstock (Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Carried Away Designer Series Paper used here)
  • Basket Weave Card printable template
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • Bone folder
  • Paper clips
  • Adhesive (Tombow Mono Liquid Glue used here)
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Stampin’ Up! supplies used here: Die Cutting Machine, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Peekaboo Peach cardstock, Banner Triple Punch, Lift Me Up Stamp Set, Up & Away Thinlits Dies, Big Shot Die Brush, Precision Base Plate, Magnetic Platform, Soft Sky and Night Navy ink pads, Dimensionals or 3D Pop Dots)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Cut a cardstock base at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Fold it in half and burnish the edge with a bone folder.

  2. Step 2

    Place the template over the folded edge of the card base with slash marks facing down, and secure it in place with paper clips. Use scissors to cut on all lines.

  3. Step 3

    Cut the bottom triangle off and set it aside.

  4. Step 4

    Open the card. Working on the outside of the card, fold every other triangle down, and tuck it under the one below.

  5. Repeat this step for each of the triangular cuts.

  6. Step 5

    Add the top triangle to the card using a little glue, and tuck the end under like the rest.

  7. Step 6

    Adhere a 5 1/2" x 3 1/4" piece of patterned paper to the card front with liquid glue.

  8. Step 7

    Embellish the card.

  9. Add a panel to the inside as well.

  10. Step 8

    Complete the project.

Thanks for the great tutorial, Kelly! Love the basketweave technique. I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for 6 years and I've never heard the dimensional tip before. My fingernails say THANK YOU! smile

Hi Vicki-Joy - you might want to be sure you're using Chrome or Firefox - the most recent versions, and make sure your adobe flash player is up to date. If you update your browser, flash will update automatically

Thanks for sharing this, love the balloon and the great tip on applying the glue to it.
I have a number of brass stencils for doing cut and tuck patterns that I had forgotten about, must get them out of hiding and have a play with them.

Great job, Kelly. You're a natural "teacher"--calm voice,
perfect pacing. Your tips are just what I needed. Attended a class a few years ago, and have a draw full of "rejects" because your poignant details were not explained--like only cut the length of the line (one is longer than the next); holding on to that bottom piece; and tucking under. Bless you for taking the time to make this look easy.

Terrific tutorial. Your hints for gluing were just what I have been looking for. Please do more tutorials. Loved it and the card.

I can't get the template to open. Am I doing something wrong.?
Jeanine Lesperance  |  Wed May 3, 2017 at 5:05 PM
Thank you SO MUCH for this template & tutorial! What a great card. And the glue tip is outstanding! TFS!
