Thanks to the SCS artists who posted their beauties in the last 2 months for inspiration and directions. My Tips: Cut 8.5"x1/2" strips, then snip each into 3 pieces (~2 7/8"). Use a 4x6 lined Post-it with a horizontal and a vertical line of repositionable dots to help hold left bottom edges in place. Add dots of glue under loose edges.
Stamp the image before placing the colors. Leave the woven squares on their scratch paper until embossed cooled. Sticky Dots Adhesive sheets work well for attaching "squares" solidly to 3.25" layer.

Ooooh, I like this! I'm going to try this with all those 1/4 inch strips I couldn't help but store away. . . could also try with different sized strips woven together. . . or different color strips. Something about an image impressed on such a texturally dynamic surface makes me want to leave this computer and go to my craft table, but not before I put this on my FAVORITES!

This is a real BEAUTY! I see by the date that it's almost 2 years since you uploaded this card. I just happened to come across it while surfin'. Love the colors and the simplicity of your image on the woven background. I'm putting your card into my Favorites to attempt to copy.
