Weavers and Wickers

Cheery Lynn Designs has a new product called Weavers and Wickers.  These are cutting and embossing plates that create strips of paper 1/4" wide for the Wickers and 1/2" wide for the Weavers.  I decided to create a Bargello background with the strips of paper.

Using the larger versions of each plate and an assortment of 4 solid color papers from the Basic Grey Lollipop Shoppe collection, I cut a full plate of strips;
 1/4" wide from the red
 1/4" wide from the blue
 1/2' wide from the green
 1/2" wide from the peach

Then using a piece of card stock 6 inches square as a base, I glued them down in a diagonal pattern.  This looked pretty good but I wanted to take it one step further.  I cut vertical strips 3/4" wide out of this paper and then started a new pattern.  And here is the result.....



I liked the background so much, I did not want to cover it up.  So I added two Oriental Butterfly Doilies to the panel.  Using my Scalloped Diamonds border and some patterned paper from the same collection, I created the nice border accent, adding some pearls as a finishing touch.  This was a fun technique and one I want to try again soon.  Finished size is 6" square.
