Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge #65 requested that we use 3 hearts on the card.... Hearts - another excuse to reconnect with the old tradition of weaving hearts, and I remembered having a template to help creating a 3-in-1 heart. Still have a lot of X-mas cards to create before December so need to focus a little bit on creating them. Tuesday Morning Sketches provided the idea for the background.
Some of you might be wondering Why did she post yet another version of a weaved heart this week? Well I have decided to make a theme for this year's X-mas cards with different interpretations of the old Danish tradition of weaving hearts. No cards should have the same heart pattern, so I am challenging myself create some hearts that I have never tried weaving before and will reguarly post pictures of them.
The technique of weaving hearts is taught to kids from an early age, and the more elaborate patterns are usually made by teenagers or adults as it takes a little patience to get it right. One of the coming days I will post a how-to so you can see for yourself how it is made.
