Phew, its been a busy couple of weeks here & I have so much to show you! ... lets see if I can catch up a little.
In cardmaking class we had a lesson about putting paper weaving on our cards. Now, I have to admit, I've never been a big fan of this technique but I did manage to make a couple of cards that I think turned out quite well.
I started simple, weaving two 6x6 pieces of paper together, one patterned and pearlescent, and the other just plain white pearlescent. I secured the back with double sided tape before using a die cutter to make the circle in it.
I added the ivory band down the side & chose a die cut sentiment in a matching colour. I threaded some ribbon through it & stuck on to the back of the weaving before attaching to the card (I had removed the circle from this earlier)
Next I chose a nice frame in ivory & simply added woven paper behind it. I mounted this onto pretty paper, and then mounted it onto ivory paper before sticking to the main card. I added a butterfly & sentiment, finishing off with 1/2 pearls down the body of the butterfly.
Maybe weaving isn't so bad after all :)
