Pattern building Background


Hi crafters!  If you are struggling for an idea for a background, why not try some pattern building using some of the dies in your collection.  Today's video uses the Beatrice die to do just that and it gives a great texture even with tone on tone backgrounds!









The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
At first glance I thought there was a new embossing folder I’d missed but quickly realised it was the lovely Beatrice die cut in white, gorgeous card and thank you for the video which I will watch later

Love and hugs to everyone
Pat

Hi Sue. What a really great idea for creating a background. It looks as though you have used an embossing folder at first glance. Love the delicate little sprig of flowers in the corner.
