Open Weave using the Intermediate Weaving Die

Hi Bloggers.

Great workshop up at CE HQ yesterday. My next workshop up there will probably be in November as October is pretty busy already. Over the next 2 days I'll be prepping and packing for my next workshop which is on Saturday located just outside Milton Keynes. We're operating a Pick 'n' Mix on this workshop where attendees choose up to 6 projects for a selection available. Bookings for this one close at 12noon tomorrow - you can book via my website here.

Here's today's card -

This card features an open weave using only the Intermediate Weaving Die. I cut it once out of Milk Card and twice out of Sky Blue Card. I left the Milk die cut completely intact and only cut the strips on one side of the Sky Blue one. Leaving one side of the Sky Blue one intact means that it's easy to keep even spacing. It takes almost one and a half of the die cuts to weave the full width.

I've embossed a piece of Milk Card using the CE Brambled Rose Embossing Folder. and glued my weave to it.

I added my frame cut from Milk Card using Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B using Woodware 2mm Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess. I matted onto Milk Card and then Sky Blue Card and finally another piece of Milk Card.

I added Sue's Thank You Die cut from Milk and Sky Blue Card.

The foliage is cut using Sue's Spring Foliage Die Set. The flowers are made using Sue's Striped Nasturtium Die Set with little flowers added to their centres from the Spring Foliage Die Set.

I completed my card by adding a 3mm Cream Pearl to the centre of my flowers.
