heres another card from the POD shows and I don't think this one even made it to your screens as it was on a shelf in the background of the set.
I know I have made a load of cards with the weaving dies but I just loved playing with them to see what different weaves I could come up with and what colours would work! A dark shade for me however i really think it works somehow in this rich purple colour!
I started by making a hinged card using the outside die from the classic adorned rectangle die set from Sue Wilson. I then used the deboss (you may have noticed last week that spell check wants to change deboss to debs!) and letterpresses the front of the card using seedless preserve distress ink which just frames the weaving beautifully (IMHO) lol
To make the centre panel I wove together the pieces from the striped weaving die set which I cut so that there are 2 strips together with an aperture in the centre.
The centrepiece is made form more of the lilac, Mauve and coconut white foundation card layered up after being cut with the outline dies form the Greek Island collection (the great thing about this collection as with all of them the outline dies match to give different layers.
