Paper Weaving Card

Cut strips of paper/cardstock into various lengths. In this case the green cardstock is cut into triangles.Adhere a small section of the paper to the edges of a selected size of white cardstock. Then weave the green cardstock under and over the paper. In this case the white cardstock underneath shows through.

When you are happy with your woven piece, adhere all loose ends after you have cut the woven piece to size to  fit on your card front. The sentiment is from a Cuttlebug Christmas Embossing Folder and the sentiments have been cut out. The star is  a Cuttlebug Die that I didn't allow to cut all the way through so the star pieces stay together.

The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge

'Use 3 different embossing/diecutting items'
This is the challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot . I have used 2 different embossing folders. One I used on the green patterned paper and then sanded it.The maroon cardstock was embossed using one of the sentiment folders. Then I used a Provo Craft star die to cut out the stars on the card.The card is cut in an angle on the top and bottom to give it an unusual shape.

Close up showing the 3 folders/dies I used.
