Feeling a bit patchy?!!!

Morning everyone!
I wanted to share one of the cards I made the the magazine feature I did a couple of weeks ago today. I popped it on my own blog yesterday so I decided on this zingaliciously bright patchwork card with Funky Hand fans today!!

I really enjoyed making this one and its such a fun way to use up a few scraps! I stuck them all on and the drew some doodley stitches around the edges of each piece.
Here's the instructions if you fancy having a quick go at one....

You will need:
5 different printed papers ( your scrap pieces would be awesome for this card)
plain cardstock cut at 5" x 10"
Score and fold your plain cardstock at 5", this will be your card base.
Cut your biggest piece of paper at 4 7/8" x4 7/8"  and distress the edges using the edge of your scissors.
Cut the other pieces at 1" x 4 5/8", 2 2/8" x 3 4/8",2 2/8" x 2 2/8", 1" x 2 2/8 and again distress all the edges with your scissors.
Adhere them all to your largest piece of paper in the same layout as shown in the picture.

Using a black pen, doodle some faux stitching around the edges of the patchwork pieces.

  2. Lou this is a cracker of a card idea! The great thing is you can create it with whatever Funky Hand papers you have to hand. It would look different every time. Thank for sharing this with us.
