Hope you are all well and had a lovely christmas.
We had a lovely couple of days spent with the family. Have eaten and drank far too much but I suspect that goes for a lot of us lol. All my visitors departed this morning so I was able to get back into my crafty room this afternoon and have a play.
One of my things to do during the coming year is to try some new techniques and ideas. So I thought I would start with this card. I have seen cards created in magazines using paper weaving. This is how I have created the background here. I used some plain coredinations cardstock and some patterned paper from my scraps box. To tidy up the edges I added some glitter paper strips to act as a border. The centre panel is a new tonic die that my lovely Mum got me for christmas. The sentiment is a peel off. The flower is a spellbinders die and the parchment butterfly was made by my Mum.
Overall I am pretty pleased with how this turned out and will certainly by doing the paper weaving again. Sorry about the glare on the photo but matted it onto mirror card and this is not good for getting good glare free photos lol.
Thanks for popping by and for any comments you may leave. Why not give paper weaving a go. It is not too difficult but the end result is really effective.
