Basket Weave Card

Hi Everybody!
Jenny from Crazy About Cricut here, and I'm excited to be sharing another design team project with you :O)  All my kids are in school or napping, so I actually have a couple of hours to play during the day!  So I decided to try a weaving technique using the best twine :)  Here are the details:

*Jaded Blossom - Feeling Fruity stamp set (sentiment)
*Preserves Cricut cartridge - strawberries
*Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge - basket
*My Mind's Eye, Stampin' Up! - patterned paper
*Recollections - brown cardstock

*To create the weaving on the basket, I first ran a strip of adhesive down.
*Then I took a few strands of Kraft twine at a time and created rows.
*Next I ran another strip of adhesive parallel to the other.
*I took a few strands of Chocolate Chip twine at a time, and weaved them through the Kraft twine going over, under, over, under, etc.

 *For the strawberries, I put adhesive on both sides of the cut and wrapped some Cherry Red twine around it.
*I used Olive Green twine for the "stems".

I hope you liked my project :O) Make sure you come back to check out more amazing twine inspired projects from the design team! And don't forget to check out the Timeless Twine August challenge HERE. TFL, and have a twine-tastic day!
