Braided Cards - So Fun and Beautiful to Create!!!

 After perusing Pinterest, I came across braided/lattice work cards. I had to try the technique right away! I fell in love, I guess because I always liked flowers and vines on lattice work. I was pleased with how easy it is to do this technique, thanks to online templates. It's worth a try for your own fun. I have a link to a template for your use. I also have links to the products I've used to make the cards.
