Lattice work number 1 (Font and Pattern)

I have spent over a month trying to work out how i can make lattice cards, cut how i want them too on my cricut using the "sure cuts a lot" program. But always with no luck! Because just not long after i brought my cricut, my girlfriend brought a craft robo and i loved all the things she was doing with he machine specially lattice work and thought i should have brought one of them instead, but i didn't and had to live with that. I have sooo many Lattice templates plastic and metal that most have only been used once as the cutting involved is far too much. Then when the "craft edge" brought out the "sure cuts a lot" program i thought a long time about buying it. Then they brought new features into the program and i took the plunge and brought it. I loved all the things that it could do, but i still could not get it to do the lattice the way i wanted it too. Till I then went and designed the fonts to how i wanted them to look and a set of LATTICE FONTS later. I am happy to say I/you can make what ever cards we want with lattice everywhere :-
Here is a link to a set of LATTICE FONTS that you will need to down load (and install) to be able to cut the cards
And here is the first of ten cards that I have made using the FONTS and the bug stamped on it is by alota rubber stamps .
***Please note that it is best cut using light weight card stock (this one was white on one sided and and blue on the other to give the two toned effect.) and that if it makes you mat messy with the slits off cuts just get an old credit card and scrap the pieces of with that .



If you have Sure Cuts a Lot and cricut HERE IS PATTERN
