This year I am aiming to make cards that are very quick and simple in an effort to use up a lot of the stuff I have had for years, and as such have been taking a closer look at all my 8” x 8” Christmas pads, in particular looking for papers that have a patchwork pattern that can be used as a whole or papers that have a small pattern that can be up cut into squares or stripes to create a patchwork effect.
This paper falls into the “using whole category”, which just needed mat and layering on white and then red. All I had to do then was add a Craftwork card Christmas sentiment circle on a strip across the top of the card with a few large, flat backed gems.
I have to admit adding tiny gems and micro glitter to the pattern isn’t that quick, to be honest it’s down right fiddle-farty, especially as my eyesight isn’t what it used to be and as a result I have had to buy a pair of 3.00 readers from Poundland to wear over my contact lenses especially for the task.!!!
