Basket Weave Card

My first ever Basket Weave Card and I am excited to share it here. I just made a simple one, since it was my first try. Was searching for something different and came across this basket weave, so at once gave it a try. Will try to find some time and share a tutorial with you.

August is here and so far I only made 1 christmas card. Yes only ONE. I am soooooo way behind. Need to start desperately soon. I have had a busy week and didn't have much time to sit at my craft table and get creative

But there is a good news. I just received 3 beautiful digital stamps from Fabrika Fantasy for a challenge that I won at Scrapping4funchallenges blog. Its for my When A Butterfly Sees Flowers handmade card. I decided to choose all 3 christmassy digis so that I can have some unique and fun christmas cards.

Back to my basket weave card, I used a light green card as base. That's the card that I used the basket weave technique on. It's actually very simple to make. I then layered the base card with pattern paper. And used gold border stickers for all four sides of the pattern paper. Using my spellbinder's Sapphire, I die cut a 'With Love' sentiment from a piece of black coloured cardstock.

The paper roses are also die cut and hand rolled then I glued them on a stamped leave that was hand cut. To make the card look more presentable, I added a few purple pearl embellishment.

In my next post I will be sharing with you my first handmade christmas card for 2017. Hopefully can share it by tomorrow. Until then, Craft With Love
