Woven winter wishes

Stamp: Elzybells
Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko)
Other:Tag-a-long die (Clearly Besotted); Tiny Heart die(SSS); white ep; white gel pen
Cracking on with my Christmas cards this week.  (Liking the alliteration there?).  Simple strips woven together, nice & easy I thought.  Hmmnn.  Took a lot more thinking about than I anticipated.  In the end I made 2 template banners - one with 4 vertical hearts at measured intervals, one with 4 horizontal hearts - & used those to make sure my hearts were in the right place.  Only THEN was it simple!
The woven part is adhered to the card base with differing thicknesses of sticky pads, to accentuate the texture.

  1. LOVE! Such warm texture and colours - great idea to stick the sentiment out like that!

  2. I really like the homey feel of this. Did you use felt for the strips?

    1. Hi Toni. No, it's not felt, just card, but the kraft strips are thinner than the red ones, so they bend easily for the weaving. Jenny

  3. Oh, I love your weaving! This looks terrific!
    Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch!

  4. This is my first visit to your blog and I'm loving it. This is the cutest card! I'll be back to see you again. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Gorgeous card Jenny, I love the paper weaving.
