Third time Lucky!

by Valerie
(Otago NZ)

I have been trying new techniques (for me)

This is a Bargello card, taken from the needlework style.

It is done with paper strips, adhered to paper and cut into a pattern with a template. I added some gold braid and an embossed label.

Next a "quilted" card made with paper instead of material, embossed with the CB to give it a bit of a lift.

Then a Herringbone card made with strips of paper and a recycled greeting added.

Then my favourite card craft, a teabag folding card medallion made with a side cut out tile.
I mounted this on black and white papers.

Christina says ...

This is another wonderful collection to add to the stunning cards from Valerie and they are all special.

They could be for any occasion and I like the use of the recycling ... always pays to be frugal whenever we can.

And using stuff that would otherwise have been thrown in the trash can has to be good.

There are lots of ideas and styles to choose in the Easy Projects pages and all are with instructions on how to create each one for yourself.

And you will find Paper Weaving in the Techniques section in the NavBar to your left.

All four cards are just lovely but I particularly like the tea bag folding one. I've tried the tea bag folding but not used on a card yet so you have now inspired me to do so. Well done

All these cards are brilliant. I should imagine a lot of thought and preperation went into them

Lovely cards Valerie. It looks very interesting but I am sure very time consuming.

Love these cards Val. Always looking for something different and feel I will have to give these a try real soon. A good opportunity to use all those small scraps of paper too than we hang on to "just in case!"
