Hi all :)
On Kristina Werner's site ( a while back was a tutorial for a card she made that involved weaving ribbon. She has these fabulous youtube videos once a week called 'make a card monday (MACM). I absolutely loved it and couldn't wait to try it out. The weaving worked out perfectly and I was happy with the result - especially using chocolate grosgrain ribbon as it gives it that 3 dimensional effect. The buttons on the side are from a pair of my daughters pants - they came with extra buttons just in case the others get lost (I have a whole stack of these). I tied the two buttons together with the cotton that also came with the buttons. I like the overall effect.
Now, after saying all of that, I do not like this card but the reason why i am showing it on my blog is to show you how the weave turned out. No matter what I chose to go with the 'embellishment' I had made, it just wasn't right, so will keep this aside until I can build up my supply of dp's (got to stop spending money on other products first!!!) and figure out what I should do. If you guys have any suggestions at all I would appreciate the help :)
