Hi Bloggers.

I've got another woven card today. I love playing with different combinations. This one uses Sue Wilson's Striped Weaving Die in a 2 by 2 weave.

I cut the Striped Weaving Die twice out of Coconut White Card and twice out of Custard Card. I split the Custard die cuts into strips of 2. The Coconut White Die Cuts, I glued together on both ends offsetting them to fill in the gaps.

I left the left hand side intact and cut up the right hand side to make pairs of strips. I wove a pair of Custard strips in and out of every 2 Coconut White strips until the full length was completed.

I cut a frame out of Coconut White and Custard Card using Sue's Ornate Pierced Rectangles Die Set. I cut the largest die in the set out of Coconut White Card to form a mat.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Delightful Sentiments Stamp Set onto Custard Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags Die Set and cut a mat out of Coconut White Card.

I made a flower out of Felt using Sue's Classic Foldover Flowers Die Set (see my video here).

I cut some leaves and flowers using Sue's Blossoming Branch Die Set. I shaped them using an Embossing Tool and Moulding Mat. I added some 3mm White Pearls to the centre of the flowers.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
