Creating Cards with Custom Patchwork Paper by Helen Tilbury

We're back with an awesome card-making tutorial from My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Helen Tilbury featuring our February Limited Edition kit (this is our fourth post today- please scroll down to view our previous posts).

Here's Helen...

1. I used premade 'blanks'complete with envelopes to make for speedy creating.

2. I chose pretty sections of the patchwork paper I had created & cut it to fit the card, making it slightly smaller all round then reduced it another 3/4"on the length, cut it into 2, then adhered it with the space in the centre, which is where I placed the ribbon/bow.

3. I inked the edges with dark brown ink, tied the bow around, securing the ends with tiny glue dots.

4. To finish off the cards I added a sticker sentiment on the ribbon on the right hand side & a large flower above the bow.

Using this recipe one can make many cards quickly!
