Geometric 2 x 2 Intermediate Weave

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the weave, I cut the Intermediate Weaving Die out of Coconut White Card twice and out of Sky Blue Card twice. I glued a Sky Blue die cut on top of a Coconut White one, offsetting it to fill in the gaps. I did the same with the other pair of die cuts. I cut one of the die cuts into pieces 2 strips wide and wove through the other under 2 strips, over 2, under 2 and so on to the end. I continued with my weave ensuring that the pairs that I wove through stayed in the correct order i.e. always blue then white.
I made a frame using the Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B and added it to my weave using Woodware Foam Tape. I matted onto Coconut White, then Sky Blue and another piece of Coconut White Card.

I cut a Stitched Flag out of Coconut White Card and the sentiment from the Celebrations Shadow Box out of Sky Blue Card.

I cut my flowers and leaves out of Coconut White and Sky Blue Card using the Pinwheel Flower Die Set. I added an 8mm White Pearl to the centre of each flower.
