Cards on Thursday

Time for some fun with Bella Blvd today!
There are a ton of really sweet cards up on the blog today, so don't miss it:

This card takes me back to the days of Jr. High when we learned to weave yarn to make pot-holders! 
After cutting a 3.5" X 3.5" piece of cardstock, I then layered it with strips of woven Designer Tapes.
 Just apply the tapes to a piece of paper and trim; use a tab of glue or small Glue Dot for the bottoms pieces so that they won't move around while weaving. For a finishing look, machine stitch around the perimeter.

 Supplies:
Birthday Boy: Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Sophisticates: Sprinkles & Lace Ice; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle McIntosh; Button Market: Blues; Designer Tapes: 12 mm Combo

 Using an oval shaped piece of cork as inspiration, I set out to create this island of fun card with the
 Sand & Surf Collection! Cork can be easily found at any craft-supply store. I love how it looks a lot like a sandy beach. I used strong-bonding Glue Dots to adhere the chipboard palm tree to the side of the cork.
 A perfectly peachy summer card!

 Supplies:
Sand & Surf: Surfs Up, Paradise, Borders, Alpha+Bits Stickers, Chipboard Icons; High Five Alpha Stickers: Blue; Ciao Chip Elements: Borders; Button Market: Tie Dye

Glad to have you here today!
