Braided Card Thanks!
This is only the second card I have ever made but I like origami, so I gave this braided card a go.
This is my Design Team project for the Mixed Media Mojo November challenge: THANKFUL. You can make anything mixed media as long as it uses the word Thanks, Thankful, Thank you etc.
The card was really simple to make but it looks intricate. I used a template that I got off of Pinterest and cut out a standard size card from cardstock.
I then added some green paper that I distressed the edges of and layered. (The paper was purchased from SOD/SOE) I just kept cutting the layers a bit smaller than the layer below it. Everything was edged with Teak Wall chalk.
I always lay out my design before gluing, just to see if everything works together. When it looks good, start gluing away. I really like the Tombow glue.
I added a small pink ribbon to the braided edge of the card and finished with my stamped image to give Thanks.
Hope you enjoyed my process. Carpe Diem!
