Free As A Bird - Patchwork Card - Video Tutorial

Today's Video will show you how I created these lovely Patchwork cards :o)

I've been playing with my Free As A Bird stamp set and Bird Ballad paper :o) So much so that I had a pile of small scrappy bits saved that I didn't want to throw away - this paper is just too gorgeous!

So .... my card was born. The inspiration came from a design layout over at Pagemaps. 

I dug out my Basic Black marker and had a play with some faux stitching .... it's been a while since I did this! 

This card was my first attempt at colouring these super sweet birds on a branch. I had to cut one off ... but I managed to save him, so will no doubt use him on another card somehow ... somewhen :o) 

This is the card I create in the Video. 

I changed the main colour for this one, switching from the Pool Party to Daffodil Delight. The flowers this time were Calypso Coral - in the first card they were Petal Pink.

 The sentiment was cut out using one of the Smooth Sailing dies.

Here is the Video ...


Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow all the metric measurements (cms).
If you use 8½” x 11” as your standard sheet of card – follow all the imperial measurements (inches).

Basic Black card base                                                  ½ an A4 standard sheet of card

Whisper White (inside)                                               14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)
Daffodil Delight                                                           14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)

Whisper White                                                            14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)
   ... trimmed after adding the Patchwork to …         14cm x 9.6cm          (US 5x 3”)

You will need more Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black card for stamping and die cutting. You will also need ‘scraps’ of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to create your Patchwork.
