Timeless Twine Design Team Day - Basket Weave Card

Hi Everybody!
I'm excited to be sharing another Timeless Twine design team project with you :O)  All my kids are in school, or napping so I actually have a couple of hours during the day to play!  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. (I think I'm still saying it in my head!).

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

*Had the perfect coordinating sentiment!

*I had enough scraps to also finish the inside :O)

I hope you liked my card, and that it inspires you to build up your card stash with twine! And don't forget to check out the Timeless Twine August challenge HERE. TFL, and have a twine-tastic day!
