Step by step

  1. With the smaller stamps create a random background using white embossing powder and VersaMark ink, and heat-set.
  2. Choose three complimentary inks and blend together to create a background. Buff away the excess ink off the embossing.
  3. Create the easel card using the template.
  4. Make two layers using the background paper with the template.
  5. Create a patchwork effect using the smaller hexagons and adhere to the patterned layer, and add a stitched detail.
  6. Wrap matching ribbon around the layers and affix to the card base.
  7. Add a sentiment topper on the base of the card to make the card stopper.
  8. Stamp, colour and fussy cut images from the set.
  9. Add a large bow to the top of the easel card and add the stamped images to finish.

This patchwork look is a great way of using up lots of small pattern scraps of paper and cardstock
