My new year's plan is to use scraps more often, or as soon as a have some.
Our sponsor this fortnight is: Happy Little Stampers.
For my card I diecut a scalloped heart from Marianne design (cr1351) and the Memory Box cross stitched love from a cardpanel, the same size as my cardbase.
I traced the opening onto the cardbase and applied tape runner on all sides. In hindsight it would be better to only apply glue/runner on a corner, so top and right or left p.e. It's easier to lift the paper strips if they're not stuck ;-)
I chose a neutral palette with some purple and cut different width strips, pretty random.
And I start the "weaving"by applying the first strip and then tucking and flipping the others, you know how to do that, I'm sure.
Once the window shape is covered and the shape can be anything you have, circle, square, star, rectangle, doesn't matter; I add tape runner to the cardpanel and adhere it to the cardbase. Trimmed where necessary.
