Woven Birthday Card
Birthday card for a friend that loves reds . . Decided to use the Purely Pomegranate card stock and ink from Stampin Up for the card. Close to red but not as bright.
Card stock base is on Purely Pomegranate, white by GP. Used a 6" x 6" paper pad pack from Stampin Up for the woven strips. This paper pad is double sided papers and be careful when cutting your strips for your card front that you do not have the Stampin Up logo on your pieces. They have their logo on each side of the card stock so be sure they do not end up on the strips you are going to use. Being double sided card stock it is easy to do the woven cards as you do not need to cut so many of the strips. Decide how many you want to use and cut them out and then decide which sides you will use side up. Plus by using the paper pad packs the prints and colours are coordinated.
For the flower I used the large flower from Betsy's Blossoms from SU and the Pomegranate ink. Punched this out using their Blossom punch. Sponged the edges of that. Used a smaller flower stamp also from that stamp set and sponged the edges of that. Put the small flower on top of the larger one using glue dots. Added a clear crystal from the stash. Used the Martha Stewart leaves punch for the leaves and also sponged the edges of those. Here is a better photo of the flowers:
For the "Happy Birthday" greeting I used a stamp from the SU stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes and I used black ink for that. The Pomegranate is a dark colour so the black shows up nicely on it. Simple card to make and you can use as many or as few of the strips that you want. For the ends of the strips I used a square punch to make the points like a banner. TFL and YOLO
