Woven Paper Technique

Are you having a busy National Craft Month?  I do hope so.  Here are my two cards for today.  I have used a paper weaving technique for the backgrounds.

On the first card I have used paper with roses, so I thought it seemed appropriate to embellish it with butterflies.  I have adhered the butterflies to pink sparkly paper, I have left the wings free and just glued the bodies.  I have woven three plain coloured squares into background so I could add the peel-off sentiment 'Just for You'.  I have added a silver peel-off border.



For the second card I have used two different sheets of paper from my stash, threaded the button and fixed it to the centre of the woven background.  I have used gold peel-offs down the sides, a solid set of letters and an outline set adhered to green paper.


Creative Blessing. x
