We had our usual Monday night craft session last night, and, after tea and home made rhubarb and custard tart, we all made woven cards. These were inspired by an article in Quick Cards Made Easy, but we all ended up with very different cards, I went with a Christmas theme, using contemporary colours and mixing paper strips with ribbon for the weaving.
The ribbon, like most of the stuff I use is from Mei Flower, I stock up from her at the SECC in October, the ribbon is cheap but holds a bow beautifully, and it comes in such a huge selection of colours.
To embellish, I added some pine branches and cones made with Spellbinders Foliage dies, a sentiment from Craftwork Cards, and a trio of gems.
