Today we have a mini tutorial for making a patchwork themed card.

"The temptation to make a punny sewing theme card was too great, and I gave in. As much as I love the look, paper patchwork is about as close as I'll ever come to quilting!"

Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

9-960 Kraft 
8-811E French Vanilla 


S4-342 Square Swatches 
S4-230 Labels Six 
S5-088 Sewing Elements 
S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants 

Other Materials Used:

Cotton string 
Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup 6x6 patterned papers 


Step One:
 Cut lots of little shapes using a die from the Square Swatches set and some bright colourful paper with small patterns. 

Step Two:
Adhere them to a scrap of cardstock (it doesn't matter what colour this is, as it will be completely covered). Once glued down, I added some stitches with my sewing machine to give extra texture to my finished card. 

Step Three:
Cut a shape using a Labels Six die. I set mine on an angle for extra interest.
