Patchwork Christmas

Another Christmas card in those lovely wintery blues and greens, this time using Patchwork Pieces dies.

Patchwork Pieces is a set of two dies each with a different patchwork pattern. I have used one of them here with Winter Meadow, a gorgeous new dsp in the soon to be released Mini Catalogue.

I started by using the die with Pool Party cardstock to create a frame which I trimmed afterwards. I cut the patchwork pieces out of a piece of dsp, one set with the leaf/berry pattern and one set of the reverse side. You can make two cards out of the pieces cut, using half on each card.

Once cut, I actually stuck the dsp pieces onto the Pool Party pieces, I find that they are easier to work with if they are that little bit more rigid. I stuck the patterned ones on first then in filled with the blue reverse side ones. Lastly the patchwork panel was slotted back into the Pool Party frame.

Christmas Classics has been used in the centre. a Stylish Shapes stitched circle has been stamped with MERRY (Misty Moonlight) and Christmas (Pool Party). The holly leaves have been coloured using Lost Lagoon and Pool Party Stampin' Blends. I wasn't sure about adding blue gems but it matched the dsp so I went with it and rather like how they look.

So many new gorgeous new products which will be available to order from 6th September.

Please come back soon for some more sneak peeks,
