The sketch this week was inspired by the talented Julie H. (Juble at SCS) and is based on this card.
When you take a look at Julie's card you will see the beautiful woven background she has created using paper and ribbon - just stunning and such a cool idea. I too wanted to create a woven element on my card but opted for a different style of weaving to Julie's. So here is the card I created:
As you can see my weaving is a little more spaced out and I used cut strips of patterned paper which I then stuck to the back of a Tattered Angels frame. I inked both the frame and the strips.
Originally I had wanted to put the Christmas Tree over to the right and use that as the second embellishment but I just couldn't get it to work - so it's now part of the main embellishment and I used my stash of seam binding, stickers and twine to create the second element.
Throughout the cards construction I wanted to add some dimension and make sure each layer stood out so out came the foam tape again!
Paper - Authentique Wonder
Dies - Taylored Expressions - Trim the Tree
Other - Craft Queen red seam binding and Darice hemp twine , TH Tea Dye distress ink, Tattered Angels frame, Jolee's snowflake sticker, Starform stickers Merry Christmas sticker, distress tool.
