Hi again! Thursday already...Hope you are all having a
productive week so far. It is sweltering hot here so getting
anything achieved in this heat is something... but it's been a
worthwhile week nonetheless & I got these patchwork cards
made the other evening.
I made these using the offcut papers from the Limited Edition
Kit, still available here. All Basic Grey "True Love"papers.
I found that I had a lot of bits and pieces of paper left over
from the kit & thought it would be fun to make up some
patchwork paper. Once I'd done that I decided to make up
a few cards with my new patchwork papers & I still have
enough paper to make quite a few more, but these 3
will give you an idea of my simple method.
I used some pre-made white cardstock cards that I bought,
complete with envelopes. First time I've seen them available
here & a wonderful idea - Blanks I guess you'd call them & no
doubt they've been available in the Western world for ages!
I chose a good-looking 'patch'of patchwork, measured it up to
be an inch smaller than the card, then cut a square & inked
it up with my brown Prima ink pad, ''Knotted Wood". Then
I cut that square IN HALF & adhered it, leaving a gap in the
I used up all 3 strips of organza ribbon supplied with the kit
& held my bows in place with tiny glue dots, added a sentiment
to the side & a rose to the top (using a 3D glue dot) &
that's my recipe! Easy!!
I still have a lot of sticker/sentiments left so I dollied up the
envelopes a bit just for fun. I'll probably give these cards
to my daughter to keep for writing love letters to her sweetie.
Take a look at the Design Team gallery HERE to see this kit
put to great use by many members of the My Creative Scrapbook
