Ribbon Woven Friendship

Hi everyone!  Laura here today sharing another card with the November Creative Cafe' KOTM: Love Makes You Family.

Base:  5&1/2" by 4&1/4" aqua cardstock.

First Layer:  Cut a 5&1/4" by 4" piece of kraft cardstock.   Turn on its side and slice at 1/4" intervals LEAVE A 1/2" BORDER around the edge, so you don't slice it all the way thru.  You can do this using a craft knife or trimmer (I find it easier to measure with a trimmer).  I worked from left to right, and the right (which will be the top of the card) will be a little shy of 1/2" inch (it's about 3/8").

Here is the finished piece:

Next you start to weave ribbon between the slits using an under/over weave, and alternating the under over pattern with the aqua and brown ribbon, then turn it over and add a piece of score tape to secure:

Once you tape it down, turn it over and stamp the leaf trio in between the weaving in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and glue finished piece to aqua card base using Scrap Happy Glue:

To make the center panel, stamp the owl family on white cardstock in Black Tuxedo Memento ink, and color with markers, then fussy cut out.  Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock using the Peacock Feather ink, trim to a banner shape, brush edges with Peacock Feather ink, and mat on kraft cardstock.

Die cut a center shape, I used pinked edge dies, and circle dies and punches to create the two circles.  Small circle--3/4" punch/white cardstock, brush with ink, mat on 1" circle punched from kraft, and mat on 1&1/4" pinked edge circle die cut from aqua cardstock.  Fussy cut heart from stitched heart patterned paper and foam tape to center of circle.  Large circle--die cut 2&3/8" circle brush with ink, mat on 2&3/4" pinked circle cut from aqua cardstock.

Foam tape owl family towards bottom of large circle, add banner above.  So you have these two pieces ready to add to the card:

Add pieces to the center of the card front, using foam tape.  Tie a ribbon to the side of the card.

Thanks for stoppin' by today!  Ribbon weaving and stamping are a great combo.....give it a try!
