Paper Piecing And Pixies


Hi crafters!  Paper piecing is an easy technique and you can even create a quick and beautiful card with the right design.  The Feather Leaf Frond and Pixie powders make a perfect combination for this technique!

























The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  8" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. I have watched the video and seen that actually this card is quite straight forward to make. Love the way that you have used the white outline if the die with the white card but I also think that the outline could also be made out of a different colour.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Beautiful card using the Feather Leaf Fronds as a featured background. And the pixie powdered layer is gorgeous showing through the fronds apreture. Great and inspiring video. Thank you so much.

ursula said...

As usual, love the pixie background, but what an amazing idea for a quick card with any suitable sentiment...thank you Sue, great video....luv Ursula xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, when I read 'paper piecing' I thought oh no! not all those tiny pieces :-) but having watched the video I am relieved to see that it is much easier than that. The fronds make a great background and who doesn't love a hug even if it is virtual.
