Patchwork card... made easy!

Ive seen alot of these cards around recently and liked the look, although the thought of pulling out my sewing machine and threading the darned beast up just to sew on cardstock was beyond me! Heres my effort, the cheats way!

Ive turned the patchwork on its side and using a pricking tool and my white gel pen just addes Faux Stitching... I think it works.. The patchwork was glued onto a separate piece of scrap card with some pencilled guide lines then I trimmed to size after gluing all the squares...

I sponged a little green around the sentiment panel, just to make it stand out a little more. Little bit of ribbon and some sticky pearls...

What do you think?

Recipe.
Cardstock: SU! Kraft Whisper White and Rose Red.
Ink: Rose Red and Old Olive.
Patterned paper: All SU! Offcuts.
Ribbon from SU! Pearls from stash.

Again please leave a comment or just tick in a box below!!!

it certainly does work - i was considering buying a cheap machine to put on my desk for this purpose, instead of having to get mine don out of the loft now i realise i dont need one - i can just have more stamps instead ;)

Both of these cards are gorgeous, wouldn't be surprised if your client had both of them....
