Patchwork Christmas Card

This card measures 5ins x 5ins and is made using a ribbed Kraft hand cut card blank.
Patchwork Christmas Card bPutting the patchwork of a a patchwork card together was a little more fiddly than I first anticipated, but I got it together in the end. I arranged and glued scrap pieces of Christmas patterned paper onto a square of white card, measuring approximately 4.5ins x 4.5ins and then layered that on a hologram type mirror card, before finally positioning it onto the card blank.

I then made a layered strip to go across the card using a length of Kraft card and paper that matched those already used on the card.

I originally added a silver Craftwork Cards sentiment to the  plain and scalloped circle layered backing (using various sized punches), but when I looked at it, it just didn’t look right, so I replaced it with a gold one, which looked much better, especially against the yellow/gold flat backed gems etc.

Super use of all those scraps though it took longer than you intended. I hope Nigel didn't have the glue pot.! Hugs Mrs A.
