Make It Monday #180: Paper Weaving

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Hi there! Do you ever start with an idea you think is going to be so awesome but then when you start making the card you end up going in a completely different direction? That's what happened to me when I went about making my card for this week's MIM. I had a color scheme in mind, a stamp set picked out, and I had even sketched a card layout. I didn't use any of it. I had a lot of fun making my card though!

I started out by doing my paper weaving. I cut out a piece of cream card stock and placed a piece of adhesive along the top. Then I went about adhering different strips of patterned paper. I took more strips and weaved them through the first layer of strips. To get a square I sent the whole thing through my Big Shot with a Sizzix square die. I then die cut the umbrella and scalloped edge. I cut a small piece of cream card stock that I flagged one side of to stamp my sentiment on. I finished by tying a bow around the front of the card. Thanks for coming by and checking out my new card!

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Scattered Showers
Dies: Sizzix square die, PTI Scattered Showers
Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, Recollections 110 lb cream card stock, Fancy Pants Park Bench paper pad
Ink: Color Box Cat's Eye Pigment Ink in Sea Glass
