I like the bold colors and combination! The weaving is so cool and the heart cut out really helps to focus on the weaving!

TFS! great job!

This card is so heart-felt. Love it.

The woven heart is a perfect idea for this technique, love how it turnd out!

I 'wuv' your weave!

Love your color choices and the weaving mounted behind the heart is soo cool.

I love your paper-woven heart! It looks great, and your card design sets it off beautifully! TFS. Daria

I made this card using up some scraps left from other projects, and I thought I was following all the guidelines for the challenge but when I came to post it and re-read the instructions I saw that it required a “medium to large” image stamp and I'm not sure if the (rather small) heart border I stamped meets that size designation so, if not feel free to disregard this entry.

I'm posting it anyway because it does use the technique you requested, in what I found a fun way, so I hope others may get some ideas from it.

I did the weave by laying down a piece of low tack masking tape, sticky side up, on my table and placed one row of the strips so that one end was on that tape and sort of held in place then I wove the strips going in the other direction through those.

I made the front piece, with the heart cut out on my cutting machine and put lots of strips of ATG glue on the back of it then positioned it over the woven strips, pressed it down, and then went along the edges cutting off the ends of the strips flush with the edges of the heart frame piece. The rest was pretty simple.

I stamped the heart border across the card and added a few of the left over strips to frame it then stamped the sentiment on a tag and attached that with twine and glued the whole piece to the card base using my ATG again.
I stamped a sentiment inside, which I forgot to photograph added a little accent heart and voila!

Thanks for looking.
