Patchwork - Grid 37

Pergamano have fairly recently released two more multi grids - in fact nos: 36 and 37.  I bought them as soon as I knew about them directly from Pergamano and have just now had a chance to play with no: 37.  This one is all about patchwork and I think it is going to be one of my favourites.
Until my arm is sorted out I am a bit a restricted in what I can and can't do craftwise.  I can do parchment as that is quite easy one handed and I can use my Big Shot one handed as that is so stable.  But the guillotine is difficult.

For this card I embossed all but three of the little patchwork scenes.  I then made a patchwork using the smallest die of a set of hexagons I have just bought.  They are not the perfect size but near enough.  I cut several in red, green and yellow and stuck them in a pattern to a backing paper.
The striped card was printed using a Carol Ann's Studio CD.  I then offered up the parchment to the hexagons and  fixed them by using brads and some Perga Glue.

I don't think I will be making many more cards but I might try and do some finishing touches to ones almost complete.  I have to try and keep busy.


  1. I love the patchwork on this card Carol, lovely pastel colours too.

  2. Hi Carol

    I love this card, it's beautiful and the patchwork is wonderful, it must have taken you ages to put it altogether.
