Birthday Card For a Baker !

Hello friends 


Don't let expectations and the thought of perfection prevent you from actually finishing what you start.Sometimes the main goal is to simply FINISH. 
CELEBRATE that you did it.

I have realised that with whatever I have I can do much more or haven't been seeing it in that perspective and hence I came up with my #52weeks52crafts challenge for myself . Taking this forward with loads of learning on the way !




Todays creation is a card, dedicated to all my baker friends .

I have used Paper piecing technique for this card . Paper piecing is a technique that provides additional interest to a card . Images are typically colored with marker, watercolor, pencils, etc., then cut out and arranged. Paper piecing is a great alternative to coloring that allows you to add texture, interest, and pattern to your projects. In addition, it is lots of fun!!

I have used 2 different pattern papers from Hobby craft water color paper pad  and completed the apron and the hat here . This stamp set came along with a stamping magazine here in UK.

Things to keep in mind when you are trying this out 

  • Choose images with large open areas 
  • Use sharp detail scissors Cut along the center of the stamped line. This ensures your pieced element will be neither too small nor too large. 
  • Cut out the patterned paper. Hold your scissors still and slowly turn the paper into the blades to maintain the best control. 

I just love the Papermania Solid Premium Cardstock Colossal and the wonderful colours it consists . I chose to go with a shade of blue here and layered it with a beautiful print from Its a Boy paper pad cavania london .
CIC423 Birch Press Designs Cupcake Bouquet I have created inspired by the colours and cue to baking.
