Hi dear people, it’s Lisa and I’m back on the blog with two cute cards I made with the Confetti Wishes collection.
The main focus on these cards are the paper weaved pieces. To start, I cut a lot of 1cm paper strips from almost all of the papers from the collection. Then I weaved them together, creating this cool and colorful design. I adhered the whole thing to a white sheet of paper so that it would’t fall apart when I cut it.
For the first square shaped card, I cut a heart out of a 6×6 piece of the weaved design. Then I placed some white paper in the heart shaped hole and I stitched around the heart with a chain stitch, using three shades of pink to create an ombre effect.
I used two rolled flowers that I had left from a previous project and some of the chipboard and cardstock stickers to embellish the card. I used a beautiful and big gold and aqua foam thicker saying ‘Hooray’ to stick in the middle of the card and added some gold splatters.
For the second card, I cut out three small hearts out of the weaved design. I stitched around them using pink, green, and gray thread.
To embellish, I used some chipboard and puffy stickers and some dots from the foam Thickers sheets.
Those cards are perfect for every occasion – birthdays, congratulations wishes, thank you’s… I hope you’ll try this technique and chain link stitching, it turns out so good every time! Thank you so much for being here, see you soon!
