Paper Weaving

Good morning to all my friends and  followers I hope you are all keeping well and  looking forward to the weekend
Today I'm sharing something a bit different. Last Thursday at the craft group I go to we did paper weaving something I have not done for a while. I managed to make two cards which I finished at home with some embellishments so thought you might like to see them. They are both made with the same technique but very different style cards. I also used a 5x7 card on one of them something I've not used in a long time .





Card Recipes

6x6 blank card and 5x7 blank card
Kraft card
Papers are Docrafts Papermania Capsule elements wood and  Blue Pure Frozen design pad I bought at Poundland
Both the frame dies and the flower die are eBay finds.
Sentiment stamps are Lili of the Valley Time to Party currently on sale for £2.50 and Handwritten Phrases now only available as a digi set
Hessian Stars from Poundland ages ago.  
Bark stars I think from Live and  Love crafts before they closed
Pale blue flower pearls Brenda's Lace and  Ribbon Specials Facebook shop
Other blue pearls and  tiny organza bow my box
Blue Memento Ink Pad Paris Dusk

Hope you enjoy these we certainly had fun at class making them and I was pleased how they turned out, its good to do something different from time to time. Love and  hugs Carole x

I like this technique and yours is especially effective with the paper and pretty colours you used. I also like the burlap stars which ae very pretty and the birthday sentiment is very nice.

Both cards are beautifully done! Been a long time since I tried doing that technique...(remember it being something that took ME a long time to do...probably why I haven't tried it lately) But your amazing cards are inspiring me to give it a try again...Thanks for sharing.

This is such a coincidence Carole as I've been doing some weaving today for a magazine commission. I've had the Sue Wilson dies for years and never used them, what a lovely effect you get
These are fabulous, love your finished designs.

Carole, these are so beautiful! It's not often I see paper weaving... these are stunning. The color palettes are gorgeous and I love the story and floral detailing. Thank you for always inspiring us so sweetly. Have a wonderful day, my friend. :)

Hugs and blessings,

What a weaver you are, Carole!! These are spectacular cards!! Such a lot of work and very, very impressive to me since I usually plop a stamp in the corner of my cards and call it Merry Birthday or something, haha! You are mega talented, my friend!! Hugs, Darnell
