From My Heart Designer Series Paper

When I finally found some time to get creative in my craft room I felt I want to pay tribute to my mother and her patchwork projects. Although my mum hasn't been with us now for a few years, with the death of my father just before Christmas, it was a time to gather share out the last few items my father had at the nursing home with him. This included a few patchwork quilts and it made me think again of my mum and her craft.

So with the patchwork theme in my head and the beautiful From My Heart Designer Series Paper (DSP) I browsed the web and was inspired to create a card similar to Mary Fish's (click here to view).

It is a great way to use up your strips of leftover DSP and with a coordinated pack of DSP it is so easy to make a pretty and well balanced card.


I mounted my pieces of DSP on a piece of Basic Black and left a gap between each strip to give extra impact. To help get them well aligned I started with one long strip diagonally across and then worked my pattern out from there.

Don't worry if your strips of DSP hang over the edge as you build up your pattern, because when it is covered, you simply turn it over and use a pair of long scissors to trim off the excess.


As we are attending next weekend the wedding of my husband's niece I made one of the cards into a wedding card and the other a thinking of you card that could be used for a variety of occasions.



To get the ribbon to match my project I simply used a Real Red Stampin' Blend to colour my White Crinkled Seam Binding, which is a quick and easy way to make sure you have a ribbon colour that blends perfectly with your project.
