faux marbling back ground.
1) Fold your card stock in half. I use a A4 sized piece usually as I am hopeless at working out the dimensions of the finished card till its finished LOL. If you have card stock that is a different colour on the back to the front this looks awesome too. Use a bone folder and run it along the folded edge.
2) Place folded card so folded edge at left. Measure and mark a dot at top and at the bottom at 1cm and at 2cm from the folded edge. Mark a line with a pencil and ruler at each dot all the way down from top to bottom
5) Use ruler and sharp craft knife to cut thru the folded card on the marked lines only. Do not cut scored lines. Once lines are cut turn it over and score the spaces between each cut line as you did on the front.
7) Once all bits glued down refold card and use a bone folder to press all scored areas and spine firmly in place. Tada card with lattice spine is done. You can do the same effect under or at top of the card by drawing lines horizontally but not all the way to the edges. You can even make circle patterns like this. On this spin bg card I stuck the removed bottom part inside at top.
