SORRY.....

9th March 2014
After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......

OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Patchwork Butterfly Birthday Card

 Patchwork Card
Another simple card using my nine square layout.
Close Up of Butterfly patchwork Card
I’ve  used an assortment of punches to put it all together, including my new Martha Stewart punch.

I’ve  used Bazzill paper for the punchies from a stack from DCWV
Butterfly Patchwork Card
Small flat backed pearls and gems complete the design – sorry about the wet glue, I am always too eager to get things blogged!
Extra Info:- The card blank measures 5.25 x 5.25ins. When I am making the middle panel I glue the scalloped squares on a rough square first and then trim around it by eye on my Dhale cutter so it looks evenly centred.
The scalloped square punch measures approx 2cm x 2cm and is by docrafts Xcut.

wow Helen - this really pops and is stunning - I love the colours you have chosen for the card...you really do need to be discovered - I think you should have a DT spot somewhere or be in a magazine!!! (a craft one just in case you were wondering) LOL!!!

Lovely card. What dimensions do you use for the base for the nine squares? I am just being lazy, but you have got it looking perfectly in proportion.
