Bah Humbug - Challenge 36 - Paper Weaving

This weeks challenge over at Humbug Hall is paper weaving.  Had to have a little think about this one but ended up with a heart shaped Christmas card.  I started off using two pieces of light cardstock from my stash cut to 14cm by 9cm and I rounded the top of each piece (I used an old CD).  I then made four cuts (giving 5 strips) from the bottom edge to about three quarters of the way up to the top.  I then inked all the edges and used a swirl stamp over both pieces.  I then put both pieces together at right angles weaving each strip over and under the co-ordinating strip on the other piece.  I then fastened the loose ends and used d/s tape to attach it to a 6"x6" card base.  I then cut around the heart shape.  The cute baby polar bear and star are from Stamp addicts Polar Bears SA-6019.  Coloured with Promarkers and die cut using nesties with matching scalloped mat behind.  Flowers are from my stash and leaves were made using my Nellie Snellen punches.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up Contempo Christmas set.  I added a bow and matching ribbon.

Thanks for dropping by.
