Found this video online. Just randomly. Check out the way she swaps the cards around, about 30 seconds into the video. Can't believe I never thought of that. Don't know what language this is. Also, I love those cards.

Google translate identifies the comments as being in Russian. I love those clear acrylic cards and being able to see the threads running through them. No shuttle, no beater, very simple way of working and a beautiful braid! Thanks.

I love those clear plastic cards, too, though I still don't understand the logic of card weaving. But then I was mesmerized by what I thought was a blue and black cushion/upholstery fabric, which moved!!! Gee, it was someone's skirt! Still love it.

It is indeed Russian. And I want acrylic cards too now!

Well, I'm looking into it. Acrylic can be brittle, so I may try getting some done in Polypropylene as well.
