Frilly Faux Patchwork Cards

These cards measure 5ins x 5ins and are made using a white linen effect, hand cut card blank. 
The dimensional stickers on these cards came from K & Company many moons ago…….
…… I loved them, but they never seemed to go with anything, one on its own was never enough,  but now I am on my mission to downsize, they had to be used, and in the end I decided “oh… bung four together and see what happens”,  to make a patchwork, hoping, with fingers tightly crossed, that it wouldn’t be too much.
I think I got away with it, pulling it together by adding extra mat and layering using palest green, white and raspberry coloured card.  The centre panel measures 3ins square and then the larger one 4.25ins square.
It’s amazing how realistic the print is these stickers/embellishments, is, even I found myself running my fingers over them a couple of times to double check .

I think this really works. You've got the matting and layering just right. The stickers have a bit of 'shabby chic' about them and look exactly like fabric. In fact I was convinced they were just that.

You more than "got away with it." This card looks great! I think you chose the perfect colors of CS to tie it all together.
