Amazing Paper Grace September Die of the Month Blog Hop - Lattice Quadrante
Every once in awhile a die comes along that gives you so many combinations that it's almost like a puzzle. Today we are sharing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for September 2020 - Lattice Quadrante. The four pieces of pristine cut, pie-shaped lattice with decorative edges will have you twirling, twisting, and setting the pieces on end figuring out all the beautiful configurations you can make.
Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to create with.
Lattice Quadrante Details
Who isn't a fan of lattice? Becca shared that so often she longs for pairs of motifs so that she can cut a symmetrical design in one pass. This die is symmetry on steroids! She has given us four identical motifs that function as inlays or can be used altogether with a rim to make a rounded central element. The word quadrante comes from quads and is just the hint you need to know that there are four pie-shaped pieces in this set to create a configuration powerhouse.
Today we want to inspire you to think of different combinations using the Die of the Month, Lattice Quadrante.
It's truly like a puzzle! Here's what we came up with.
Use all the motifs together in the rim for a large motif.
Alternate motifs in the rim for an alternating lattice design.
Cut each piece separately and use the pointed end as corners.
Make a tall card by stacking two of the motifs the tall way.
Make a pocket card by cutting two of the motifs side by side.
Set the die on point and cut a v-shaped peek a boo piece.
Use one motif alone.
Are you getting the picture? We can name so many more!
