Patchwork Flowers - Collaged Card

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing stitches
  • Basic cutting and gluing

Pattern Description:

Capture the simplistic innocence of a flower within embroidery floss and paper! A home made card is always a special touch when sending someone a note.

As a girl, I'm positively in love with flowers and sparkles. As an artist, I also enjoy variety of textures. I got this idea from combining an embroidery stitch I learned with some scrapbooking paper a friend gave me. In our modern world of texting, email, and Facebook, my grandmothers still love sending handwritten notes to their friends. Every year I craft a dozen or so cards for them as a Christmas gift, and this is one that I designed for them. Now you can enjoy it too!

The templates included can also be used to create a small collage to frame.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished dimensions of front of card: 5 1/2" by 4 1/4"

  • Four different shades of printed paper (I use scrapbooking paper)  One floral sheet for base  Three sheets in complimentary colors
