Patchwork Plaid Card Duo

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.

Patchwork Plaid Cherry Cobbler Card

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.

Patchwork Plaid Night of Navy

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.

Pine Tree Punch Christmas Tree Card Duo

This pair of cards feature the Pine Tree Punch to build up larger Christmas trees. Each tree is made up of nine punched trees, punched from the Wrapped in Plaid Speciality DSP.

I’ve based one card on Night of Navy and one on Shaded Spruce and given each one a gold foil star punched from the Twinkle Builder Punch.

Pine Tree Punch Christmas Card 2

This is  a quick and simple card which would be easy to mass produce if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make, you can also use any papers you’ve got to make the tree.
