Patchwork Thank You card by designer Patty Folchert

Say thank you with some homespun love with this patchwork style card. Brand new Hampton Art stamp set and Soup Staples III adapted very well into a “quilted” look.

Thank You card by Patty Folchert

The card base was built with three different Soup Staples III papers. The stamping was in brown ink onto the wood and grid patterned paper, then fussy cut out. To create the patchwork heart I selected several scraps from the Soup Staples III papers and layered them onto a heart cardstock template. I attached them with adhesive to the heart and then sewed the edges with brown thread. Next I layered the stamped images onto the card as shown. Last I added the white pearl to the center of the flower.

This card takes an old-fashioned method and makes it new using modern day papers; an unexpected and delightful combo is the result. This is a perfect card to say thank you from the heart.

Handmade & Heartfelt,
Patty
