Weaving a basket of posies was  the January/ February theme for the  " Age Of Elegance " ATC group... Of course, when I chose the Victorian pastime of weaving ... I didn't realize just how challenging it would be to fit a woven basket full of flowers on an ATC, 3.5 X 2.5 card.

 I also wasn't sure what medium to use. At first I wanted to use something shiny and glittery, so I choose a few lovely pieces of origami mylar to weave a heart basket for the flowers.  While searching through my paper stash I found this  unassuming pink polka dot background. Yes, it was perfect against the bling of the mylar design... and a nice, subtle contrast too !!!

While the  interlocking heart design is simple, the mylar was slippery ...  Still I loved the  shimmering effect, so continued on the theme and punched out some flowers,  The card needed some feathering up, so I drew some additional posies with the prisms pens and filled in with finger nail confetti.  This is  number one of four weaving cards that I have to show you ... so please do vist me again soon.

The woven heart is a perfect Valentine craft . It's  a simple and lovely way to make a pretty card. Take the time to .....  Give it a try  ... ENJOY !!!
