Check Out My Weave!

Today while crafting, I thought of something that I would love to try with some twine.

A Weave!

The art of weaving is not a new concept, we've been weaving fabrics since the dawn of time and it's definitely not a new thing in the crafty world either. I just haven't tried it out myself in years. I seem to remember weaving with wool when I was in Brownies at the age of it's been awhile!

I wanted to combine this little project with an entry for the Young Crafter's Unite Card Challenge this month. This month's challenge is to create a card that is clean and simple.

This is what I came up with. I first stamped my owl's body stamp on the front of the card and then cut it out with my exacto knife. I stamped the legs underneath and stamped the eyes and nose and cut them out too. On a separate square of cardstock I wrapped the twine and then wove in the fuschia coloured one. I glued the weave on the inside of the card so that on the outside you only see the shape of the owl.

The hearts I hand drew and coloured in then coated them with Crystal Effects. So there you have it! My clean and simple greeting card!
