Who doesn’t love cosying up under a patchwork quilt when its cold outside, I know I do and thats whats inspired this patchwork card. Each little patchwork square measures 4″ x 4″ and is cover with 16 1″ squares. I chose two patterns of the main colour, one of a contrasting colour and one white based pattern and I’ve used the same basic pattern for each card, just varied the papers used.
I made one card in Cherry Cobbler and one in Night of Navy. Each card base measures 5″ and is made from Whisper White Thick Cardstock. I then cut a matt of either Cherry Cobbler or Night of Navy measuirng 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. I then added a Gold foil layer measuring 4.5″ x 4.5″ and onto this I added my little patchwork sqaures.
I finished each card off with a Gold Foil Circle, a cardstock tree from the Pine Tree punch and and a greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas stamped on the small banner from from the Smooth Sailing die collection.
I love the patchwork effect and it’s the ideal way to use up all those little scraps we have left after a crafting session. I’m going to make some more cards with this effect very soon.
