Today’s card is a Patchwork card and this is a technique I have not done in quite a while. Fortunately it is also a technique that can be done in several different ways. I believe the way I chose has to be the simplest. I say that because I used scraps from a card I designed for my monthly Card Club last weekend.
The “You Are Amazing” is from the All Things Thanks set in the Occasions Catalog. That is a wonderful set for different ways of saying thank you.
Calypso Coral has been a favorite of mine since it was an In-Color several years ago. And when Mint Macaroon appeared it was like they were a match just meant to be together. The By the Shore Designer Series Paper is one you might overlook at first glance. But when you give it a chance and really look at the colors it is a must have. If by chance you are not into “beachy” kind of cards , just turn to the other side of the paper. It is wonderful.
Anyway, after cutting theBy the Shore DSP for my Club last week I had these little pieces left. I just could not throw these starfish and circles in the trash!! And there a card is born… A patchwork is what came of these poor little leftover pieces.
I don’t have the measurements for this and to those of you who love measurements, I apologize. But I just took them in the size they were and cut paper to fit. The only ones that I trimmed were the Mint Macaroon band and the bottom piece of Calypso Coral circles. The “You Are Amazing” is framed with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits.
Thank You for visiting my site. I hope you enjoyed this patchwork card.
