    I am trying to do a card for my aunt & uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. I wanted to do a lattice border with the flip side gold. Problem is then the gold shows on the inside. So was going to just cover it with another strip of matching cardstock. But then you see the cardstock through the lattice and it diminishes the effect. So I tried chalking the cardstock that is seen through the lattice. Ignore that the gold doesn't go all the way to the end and the sentiment is in the wrong place, this is a practice piece.
    Opinions please.

    Hmmm, trying to picture the gold on the inside...does it give the inside a bit of a decorative touch- or does it look all wrong?

    What I see here looks great anyway!

    Can you show us what the inside looks like? Having the lattice show through on the inside too sounds pretty to me.

    i think it looks fine even with the inside like that. hmm maybe put vellum on the inside to tone it down? what if you inked it white? is that what you're going for?

    Why not do the whole inside in gold and then put the sentiment ona piece that matches the outside and make it small enough so it doesn't show through the lattice.

    That lattice border looks pretty cool. I saw that on a DIY episode I think. It's a template, right?
