I’ve had some fun today, and spent about four hours with papers, scalpel, sticky tape and gem stones putting a few cards together. One took me over an hour and a second almost an hour as I nearly cocked it up completely due to a momentary lapse in concentration.
I’m quite pleased with this one as, although in a kit, I haven’t actually done one like it before. I’ve had similar sets, but have usually opted for the simplistic version, so this was a bit of a challenge and I almost came unstuck.
I had another go with the lattice template, this time forming a cross on the front of the card. Cutting out the diamonds took me an age, thus over an hour to make.
In comparison, these were quite straightforward, the fiddliest bits being the trimmings on the two cards on the left. Sorry about the flash on the bottom one.
