I'm heading up to Creative Expressions HQ in Kettering today for my last workshop this year there. Should be a fun day!
Here's today's card -
Intermediate Weaving Die out of Sky Blue, Lilac, Primrose and Aqua Card - one from each colour. I glued the Sky Blue and Lilac die cuts together, offsetting them to fill in the gaps. I repeated the process with the Primrose and Aqua die cuts. I cut the latter into pieces that were 2 strips wide and wove them through the Sky Blue/Lilac piece - under 2 strips, over 2 strips, under 2 strips and so on. I continued in this pattern until my weave was complete.
Alphabet Grid Die out of Primrose Card. I filed the tiles and letters away in my box and glued the grid to my woven background. I made a frame out of Aqua Card using dies #2 and #4 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set. I added it to my background using Woodware Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess. I matted onto Lilac Card and then Sky Blue Card.
Happy Birthday Circle Die Set out of Sky Blue, Lilac, Aqua and Primrose Card.
Pinwheel Floral Die Set for my flower cut from Sky Blue Card and my leaves which I cut from Primrose Card. I added a Small Circle Dazzler to the centre of my flower.
8mm Cream Pearls to the corners of my frame.
This is the demo version that I did on the recent One Day Special using Mauve, Primrose, Baby Pink and Stone Card.

Love this card Julia. Am watching Lisa demonstrating this die at the moment. This is a must have.ReplyDelete
You must have done the "happy crafty" dance when Sue came out with more dies to weave for cards.ReplyDelete
