This post will be rather photo heavy but hopefully it will show you how I achieved the effect.
I printed off 3 chosen backing papers from Polkadoodles Paper Boutique 2
then cut them into 3cm strips and stuck them onto another piece of A4 card, alternating the designs as I went.
I then turned the sheet 90 degrees and once again cut into 3cm strips. I then laid them onto another piece of A4 until I was happy with the pattern and then stuck into place. Let it dry and cut into the size I required.
This is my finished piece of 'Faux Weaving' or 'Bargello' backing paper.
I inked the edges and matted onto a piece of contrasting cardstock.
I placed some polkadot ribbon around the centre to break the design up a little and added some faux stitching around the edge.
I printed off one of the templates from the afore mentioned CD. Cut out the circular backing sheet, inked the edges and added a bit of glitter pen to the 'faux stitching', raised it on foam tape and added it to my card.
To complete my card I inked, glittered and put together the gorgeous Rudolph design added some googlie eyes, a sentiment and my card was complete.
Many thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave me a comment below x
