Cuttlebug Challenge - A Weave Card

Hello & Thanks for stopping by! :) Today's card is for a fun challenge over at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. The challenge is to create a weave card. Lori Boyd is the host and she has posted a wonderful step-by-step tutorial. For the complete details & samples, please click here.

For my weave. I started with 15 strips in Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette & White. My strips were 1/4" by 8 1/2" long. To get my weave going just a bit, I taped the white pieces down and started weaving the red alternating with the pink. After about 10 complete weaves, I removed the tape on the weave and started to move all of the strips together for a closer fit. I had to add a little more then what the tutorial suggested but you will figure what you will need to add as you make your weave. I cut a heart out using my heart Nestabilities from Cut At Home and then again with a smaller heart.
Once my weave was done, I cut the same large large heart and then trimmed it a bit so it would fit behind my brown heart. I tried several things with my layout but since I did not want to take away from the beautiful design of the weave, I kept it simple. The heart is popped up so I could stick a tag behind it. The tag is another heart which is where I put the sentiment. The sentiment is from the NEW Verve release called Sweet Valentine.

Before I go, I would also like to announce the winner for my watermark giveaway. Congratulations to Monica from Little Bit of Life. Please email me Monica so we can start on your watermark. :) jdmeyer6@sbcglobal.net
