Patchwork Paper Congratulations!

Patchwork Paper Congratulations!
I got to know recently that one of my colleagues that I used to work with has been promoted. We used to work together for some times but as I changed role, we no longer work together. Anyhow, I am happy for her that she finally get promoted.

Card Positioning Systems (CPS) - CPS 274 
This card layout is inspirational from Card Positioning Systems (CPS) - CPS 274 sketch/challenge as shown above. Some of the challenges are having theme of stitching and sentiment only on the card which I have not done before. Thus, I like to try them on this card.

Close-up : Patchwork paper and faux stitching
Since only sentiment can be on the card front, I try Chari Moss' patchwork paper technique so that the card would be nicer. It is quite easy to do the patchwork paper technique once you grab its secret and I am kind a hooked to it. :) Once the patchwork paper is done, the four (4) corners are rounded. It is attached onto a red card stock which the corners has been rounded as well.

Close-up : Punched embossed red strip
button with tied natural string 
On a green card base, a punched embossed red strip is attached on the left of the card as in layout. Then, the patchwork paper is attached on the card base as in layout.

Close-up : Sentiments as the card focal point with faux stiching
The sentiments are stamped on a green card stock. The four (4) corners are rounded to match the patchwork paper earlier. Using a white gel pen, I added the faux stitching border around the sentiments. The sentiments are then attached onto the patchwork paper using dimensional foam. I further adds faux stitching borders to the patchwork paper as well on the card base. I thought I over do it a little but it seem the outcome is just nice.

A button with tied natural string is added to the centre of the card in between the punched embossed red strip and patchwork paper. One glance at it, it looks like a tag!

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None
