  • White paper (1)
  • Craft knife
  • Pink cardstock (1)
  • Cutting mat
  • Green cardstock (1)
  • Decorative border punch
  • Floral patterned paper (1)

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut a 10” x 7” piece from ivory cardstock, score down the center and fold in half for portrait card base.
Cut Three 4 ½” x 6” pieces: 1 each from ivory, pink and green cardstock. Use Cuttlebug® Matelasse folder to emboss all 3 pieces. Cut out embossed strips diagonally from the pink and green pieces (2 pink and 2 green). Cut out embossed strips diagonally from the pink and green pieces (2 pink and 2 green).
Using craft knife and cutting mat, carefully cut 1” slots on the ivory piece. Only cut where the pink and green strips will be woven through. Make sure all slots are in the same direction. ( \ \ \ \ )
Skipping the top left and bottom right corners, weave strips through slots alternating pink and green. Make 1 pink and 1 green corner and attach to the top left and bottom right corners. Flowers will be at the corners so perfection is not an issue here.
Once weaving is complete, attach woven panel to a 4 ½” x 6” piece of white paper. This is for backing only. Tip: If strips tend to shift, try using tape on the back before attaching to backing paper. Trim the piece down to 3 ¾” x 5 ¼” and set aside.
Cut a 4 ?” x 6 ?” piece of pink cardstock and attach to front of card.
Cut a 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” piece of green cardstock. Use the Cuttlebug® Acanthus folder to emboss and attach to card with foam adhesive.
Cut a 4” x 6” piece of ivory cardstock. Use decorative border punch along the bottom. Cut a 3 ¾” x 2” strip from floral patterned paper and attach at the bottom behind punched edge. Attach to front of card with foam adhesive. Add woven panel from step 6 with adhesive then attach to front of card with foam adhesive.
Attach 3D flowers to corners and 3D sentiment tag bottom center of woven panel.
