Patchwork Card

Welcome - I am glad to have you visit again.

I have called this post a patchwork card as there are various parts to it.


I started with the embossed resist panel again, as I so love that technique.

I then chose a dark blue base to contrast it against, and the orange embossed panel was sitting on my desk and it also 'fitted'.

I had seen a challenge for 'flaps and folds' and remembered that when I saw this wee card.

I embossed the sentiment inside it, 

and then adhered it to the card with three strands of beads anchored behind it.
The final touches were the three sets of champagne pearls and it was finished.

Loved making this card, and the recipient loved it too.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - any comments you leave are very much appreciated
May your day be blessed.

Lovely work - a card on a card. Reminds me of a favourite children's book my boys loved, full of mini books on every page. Thanks for sharing that cute bear and your lovely work with us at Diva's by design, Jx

This is SO cute, Maxine. I just LOVE teddy bears, and you did a really creative job with this. Of course, I always wish you'd share all your darling cards at Word Art Wednesday, but...I'm grateful when you do share with us.

Thanks SO MUCH for your super sweet, encouraging comments on my blog. It's more of a blessing to me than you could possibly know. I wonder sometimes if anyone even sees my cards, but having you comment faithfully is SUCH an encouragement to me, Maxine. You always have something sweet to say, and it's enough to keep me going. Thanks SO MUCH for that! You're a doll!

Hope you're having a great day, and that this week will be a great one for you!
