Woven Paper Focal Points – Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #180

pti make it monday 180 duo

This week’s Papertrey Ink Make It Monday (#180) is about paper weaving.

I chose a piece of double sided Allison Kreft/Webster’s Pages paper, and cut fringe (connected just at the top) into the paper (rather than cutting strips and trying to reassemble the entire thing), and then wove strips of solid color cardstock through the patterned strips. I didn’t expect to like both sides of the finished weaving, but I did. (surprise!) I die cut a tag and a mat out of the two sides and made two different projects from it.

Here is the weaving:

And the two die cut pieces:

To hold the weaving together, I covered 2 pieces of 3 x 6″ lightweight cardstock with sticky tape, and mounted one on each side of woven piece. Then, I die cut – multiple times, it was really thick! The multiple passes through the die cut machine flattened the texture out a bit, and gave the pieces a slightly burnished look.

Thanks for stopping by!

Masculine Quilt Get Well Card

Trying to fill in all of the sections of my card basket, I needed a get well card that was neutral to masculine. I dug out retired Stampin’ Up! designer paper, punched squares out, and glued them on to a piece of lightweight cardstock.

Quilt backgrounds are a great way to use up all of the designer paper (or scrapbooking paper) scraps!

Christmas Card – CC496

This week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (CC496) caught my eye. The challenge colors are Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, and Soft Sky, With dessert option of Christmas theme.

I stamped ornaments, embossed with metallic (told you I would keep using metallics this week!) embossing powder, and die cut them. I also die cut the Soft Sky layer so that I could embed the red die cut ornament  (top right ornament) into the layer and not have ornaments stacked up too high.

Here is a close up of the metallic shine:

I was so inspired by the Fab Friday Challenge (#50) of gold and white that I made this set of embossed note cards.

Clean. Simple. Elegant.

Here is a better view of the SHINE:

And the final shot, in the plastic box:

I saw this Fab Friday Challenge (#50), and was really inspired by gold and white. Saturday was spent working on 10 gold and white items.

My card basket is overflowing, but I am still low on sympathy cards. I thought gold and white would be a nice addition.
