Patchwork Squares


Sorry for the lateness of my post today, I've had so much to catch up on & I think I am just about there! Anyway, I thought I would share a card that we made at one of the classes on Saturday at The Paperlane...

A super CAS patchwork style card using Background Builders: Squared, Flower Power #1 and a sentiment from A Gift For You. I started out by stamping all of the squares on to a piece of white card. I then trimmed them out leaving a small white border. 

For the pink square I masked two of the edges and stamped the outline flower in black ink. I then temporarily adhered the squares to my white mat layer so that I could space them evenly and stamp the sentiment exactly where I wanted it to be. I then adhered some of the squares flat & mounted some with foam adhesive. This was all then adhered to a Melon Mambo card base & the flower finished off with a turquoise rhinestone.

That's all from me today, I'll be back tomorrow though with the rest of the Uniko Studio Design Team for the March Design Team Blog Hop. There are a few announcements tomorrow too & of course a prize up for grabs too! Hope to see you tomorrow, until then, thank you for stopping by today & also thank you for all the congratulations & best wishes for our double bundle of joy!
