Step 1
AGEPC001
AGEPC002
Cut four 1/2" x 11 1/2" wide strips of green vines from the sheet of AG1123 Floral Stripes. [Cut strips so you will have the paper available for the strips you will need in step 4 of the card.]  Make a square of these papers and lay them upside down on your work surface.
Step 2
Cut two sheets of AG1122 Big Floral into 3/4" wide strips. Use these to weave paper on the frame you made from AG1123 Flower Stripes, weaving the paper on a diagonal and leaving about 1/4" inch between each weaved strip, see photo to check out spacing.
The best way to begin this weaving is by connecting two strips to make one 24" long strip and laying it from one corner to the opposite one. Repeat this for the other diagonal direction.
Begin adding strips on each side of these diagonals, weaving them as you go.

Trim the excess that hangs outside the frame. Turn the frame face up.

Steps 3 & 4
Cut two 1/2" x 12" wide strips of flowers from the same sheet of AG1123 Flower Stripes you used in the previous step.
Cut two 3/4" x 12" wide strips of flowers from AG1124 Pink Paisley.
Adhere the 1/2" wide floral strips over the pink paisley
Cut these strips into two 6" pieces.
Adhere these to make a square frame.   [A note from my carpenter, make sure it is a true square, or you will have a mess.   I know from experience.]  Adhere this frame over the weaving inside the larger frame. Remove the woven strips from the center of the frame.
Step 5

Use foam adhesive to adhere the weaving to a background sheet of AG1126 Green Flower Stripes.  [Using foam strips, adhere behind the outer fame and the small square frame in the middle.]

Step 6

Cut a 5 1/2" [Actually needs to be 4.25"] square from AG1125 Pink Dots. Adhere it inside the smaller frame to mat your photo.

Step 7

 

 

Adhere stickers as shown.
