Paper Piecing

Supplies: THS "Spring is in the Air" digi and "Spring Blessing", SU Afternoon Tea DP and Soft Sky CS, SU Well Scripted sentiment, Sizzix Bigz Die, Signo White Gel Pen, marker
Hi All!

Today the Treehouse Thursday Challenge (#037) is Paper Piecing.

For my card, I used "Flower #3" from the new THS digi set "Spring is in the Air". I printed it out in 3 sizes (the magic of Digi!) on two different sheets of DP. I cut them out, pieced the flower centers to the petals and created a variety of different flowers just by layering and texturizing some of them.

The filigree border on the side is made with the Sizzix Bigz XL Card Die - Floral Flourish die that I used to cut the base card. I ran the die through the Big Shot with 3 layered strips of DP over just the filigree part so I would have some perfectly sized pieces that I could paper piece onto the border as well.

This is a fun technique to use with Digi images! Hope you'll give it a try! When you upload your card to SCS, PCP, or your blog, use the keyword THT037. Link your card to the Treehouse and upload the Treehouse badge for your blog to show that you follow the Treehouse Thursday Challenge!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
