Woven Lighthouse Card (and a layered frame sample)
In one of the Spring Card Camp II online classes I recently viewed, we were encouraged to try weaving on our cards. The class samples were done with colored strips behind cut-out windows on the card front, but I was curious to see what it would look like to weave a stamped image, and this big scene stamp seemed like a good one with which to try.
Using my MISTI stamp positioner, I stamped the “Lighthouse” stamp from Impression Obsessionon on two (large) pieces of ivory card stock with GKD Chocolate Truffle amalgam ink. Then I cut each panel into 1/4 inch strips – one vertically and the other horizontally. After making sure all the strips were in order, I wove “every other” horizontal strip back into the vertical strips to recreate the scene. (As I am typing this, I am thinking I probably should have stamped a third panel for more vertical strips to create a second card with the horizontal strips I did not use here. Also wondering if I could have woven blank card stock first and then stamped – eliminating the challenge of lining everything up. Hmmm…. )
Once the strips were woven together, I adhered them to a scrap of card stock to prevent them from moving around and then trimmed it to size.
My original plan was to place the woven panel behind a cut-out window/frame as shown in the class, but the image was too large so I used the stitched frame die already sitting on my desk to create this next card…
I stamped the same image onto a piece of ivory card stock with the Chocolate Truffle ink. Then I cut three frames with the frame die; the first was from the stamped panel, and two more were from Chocolate Truffle card stock. After stacking and gluing together the three die cut frames, I put the frames and the other parts of the cut, stamped panel back together on a Tranquil Teal card base. The greeting is from Gina K Design’s “Love & Prayers” set.
Thanks for checking out my card projects!
