It’s Sunday, so I’m featuring a fun card challenge from The Paper Players. This week Jaydee challenges us with a Tic Tac Toe Challenge. There are nine options, and we get to pick three (across, down or diagonal) to incorporate into our design. Here are the options:
First things first, you can’t go wrong with ANY of these options. I pondered the chart options for more than an hour this week (not all in one sitting, mind you), trying to decide what kind of card I’d make. I decided on the Ribbon/Mother’s Day/Pink & Green combination and came up with this:
As soon as I decided on this combination, I knew I wanted to use some of my Gumball Green and Primrose Petals Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. They look so ‘1980’s preppy” together. I didn’t know I’d braid the ribbon, and I certainly didn’t know I’d use up this much of my ribbon, but I am really happy with how it turned out.
Here’s how I did it: I taped down eight or nine pieces of Gumball Green ribbon (vertically), each piece hugging the next. I then weaved** the Primrose Petal (horizontally) and taped it all down on the sides. I then layered on a piece of Whisper White with a 3″ circle cutout, followed by a Primrose Petals panel with a cutout from Floral Frames Framelits. Please know there’s a lot of tape between the card base and the card front. 🙂 Easy as can be!
** I struggled with this. I know that “wove” and “weaved” are both words, but I think I am right to say I weaved the ribbon OR the ribbon wove in and out. Anyway, I majored in Accounting, so please don’t be hard on me if I am stupidly wrong. “Weaved” just sounds right.
