Glitterbitz and Weaving

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I made this card at Ally Pally - I love the Glitterbitz with the Classic Weaving Die.

I added a piece of CE Double Self Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Coconut White Card. I measured the amount needed to cut the Classic Weaving Die, removed the backing and added Silver Chrome CS Glitterbitz. I then cut the Classic Weaving Die from it.

I cut the Intermediate Weaving Die from Coconut White Card twice and glued the 2 die cuts together at the ends only, offsetting them to fill in the gaps. I then wove these through the Classic die cut in pairs - remember 2 x Intermediate =1 x Classic in width so this ia a quick weave.

I added a frame made from Coconut White Card using dies #2 and #4 from Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frame Die Set B and Woodware 2mm Foam Tape. I trimmed away the excess and matted onto Silver Shine Pearl Card cut using die #5 from the Scalloped Lattice Frame set and then onto another piece of Coconut White.

I cut the outer die from Sue's Here Comes Santa Die Set from the DS Adhesive on card and then both dies together our of Coconut White Card. I trimmed the edge all around the DS die cut to make life easier and peeled away the backing sheet. I added my decorative die cut and then Silver Chrome Glitterbitz.

I added some foliage cut from Coconut White and Silver Shine Pearl Card using Sue's Pine Twig and Berry Bough Die Sets. I added a poinsettia made using Sue's Classic Poinsettia Die Set. I popped some CS Glue in the centre and added Silver Chrome Glitterbitz.

Thanks for stopping by.
