Today’s card may look a big fussy to make, but it really isn’t. I stamped the images from the Love What You Do stamp set, then glued down some 1/8″ strips of card stock woven together at the corners. Easy peasy!


Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Fresh Fig card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces)
  • Fresh Fig (4 pieces) and Mint Macaron (8 pieces)  CS cut to 1/8″ strips about 6″ long

Stamped with the Love What You Do stamp set:

  • color swath in Mint Macaron ink, stamped off, onto one of the Very Vanilla CS pieces
  • flowers in Fresh Fig ink, stamped off, over the color swath
  • flowers in Fresh Fig ink, stamped off, onto the other Very Vanilla CS piece

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • 1/8″ strips laid out onto the front Very Vanilla CS layer
  • center portions of strips glued into place
  • ends of strips woven together, then glued into place
  • excess bits of strips trimmed away from the edges of the layer
  • layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • second Very Vanilla CS piece glued onto the inside of the card base
