This week at Back to Basics and Beyond, we are focusing on Paper Piecing. OMGee… I forgot how intense paper piecing can be… it has been a while since I have inlaid this many pieces! The effect is fabulous and worth the effort.
I used a double wedding ring coverplate; the coverplate is die cut out of blue gingham and backed with scortape. I adhered the taped die cut to a card base, then die cut the coverplate twice more out of pink and yellow. When die cutting, I backed the paper with dryer sheets so all the little pieces would stay in place! This is a tip from the wonderful Jennifer McGuire. Then patiently, I inlaid each little yellow and pink piece into the blue gingham outline manually. I love the card.
