The challenge for this month is my small swap group was to make a 'patchwork' card - there have been some wonderful cards displayed, and I received an exquisite one from my partner.
This was my offering - I have a couple of A4 sized sheets of card that I have covered with paper snippets, ready to use as backgrounds, so I took one and cut out four squares, then 'fiddled' around to get the placement that I liked.
As you can see, there are a myriad of different papers that I used. I mounted the four squares over a black background, leaving them fractionally apart to give definition.
I also embossed the squares using a geometric folder.
I used the space at the bottom of the card to place and platinum embossed sentiment, I stamped it on black, the cut a double fishtail end to the piece, and added some silver stitching
I went through my (rather extensive) stash of card to find a base to assemble the pieces on, and this green was the only colour that really 'worked'
I added an offcut of the panels to both the inside of the card, and the envelope
