Weaved Cardstock Strips

Hello! I created this for the Scrapbook And Cards Care Recipe Challenge but I did not finish this card in time. I did not want to abandon the project and I am glad I did not. 

One of the recipes for the challenge is strips of colored cardstock. I went through my cardstock strips stash and pulled out colored cardstock strips to create my weave. I have done weaving on a card before. In case you want to check it out, here is the link, A Pocketful Of Love Weave Card.

I die cut the wreath using Lawn Fawn Mini Wreath die on different shades of green and brown cardstock. Another recipe is to use ink blending. I carefully blended ink to the wreath using Ranger Detail Blending Tool. I cut the wreath into several parts so I can adhere it to a die cut circle frame.

After the wreath has dried, I 'zhuzh' the leaves, which is the 3rd recipe, to give the wreath some dimension. I die cut the bow from Paper Smooches Bows Die on a pearl red cardstock. I adhered this to a red cardstock and fussy cut it using the outline as guide to create a solid layer for the bow. I also 'zhuzh' this bow for some dimension. I adhered this to the wreath and added a red sequin. I added Nuvo Bright Gold Drops to the wreath.

For the last recipe, I embossed a sentiment from Hero Arts Holiday Sayings on a black cardstock using Hero Arts white embossing powder. I die cut this into a sentiment strip using Avery Elle Simple Sentiments Elle-ments die.

I die cut a kraft cardstock with a stitched rectangle die from Mame Elephant Peek-A-Frame Creative Cuts. I adhered the weave, the wreath and the sentiment strip. I added foam to the back of the sentiment strip.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day! Merry Christmas everyone!
