It's time to share a little love with the world...Valentine's day is just around the corner...and I have another non traditional Valentine to share that I made with my new favorite color-Gravity Grape Astrobright-LOVE! The perfect purple! It's also on sale this month at CutCardStock.com. I saw a card on Instagram that had paper weaving on it...and I thought to myself-Lee-Ann-you have never done that-why? I decided to give weaving a try and loved the outcome-great texture and it adds a lot of interest to your focal point...the heart. Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)

Tutorial:

-choose your products(CutCardStock.com)

-choose your dies and stamps(mine are from Jaded Blossom)

-cut a 4.25x11" piece of Basis white cover stock and score at 5.5" to make a vertical A2 size card base-cut a 4x5.25" rectangle of black eclipse Astrobright card stock using a die, then cut a heart centered in the upper portion of card...then cut strips of card stock...or use border dies like I did here
-I use a Vagabond die cutting machine to cut all my dies 

-I then used my black card stock piece with the heart cut as a stencil and traced the heart on my card base...this gives me a spot to make sure my weaving will fill the whole heart-I just weave like you do in kindergarten...I stuck with stripes instead of a checker board-I alternated the widths for some interest

-I then snipped of the edges of the stripes and glued the edges down using Nuvo glue

-I chose a sentiment and 2 stamps that look like decorative tape and positioned them on my card front(after I dusted the entire from with my EK Success powder tool to avoid stray embossing powder) and stamped with versamark ink using my Misti...then sprinkled with Ranger embossing powder and melted the powder with my Marvy Heat tool

-I then attached my card from to the base with foam tape for some dimention

-I then cut some small heart dies with my Vagabond and Gravity Grape card stock and applied them in a visual triangle...and then added some Nuvo drops
