A 'Paper Pieced' Card

Today I have a birthday card to share with you which I have paper pieced.
I have been seeing quite a few cards just recently using this technique,
so I thought I would give it a try.

I really like the effect the two layers gives to the flowers. The first layer I glued
down fully, the second layer I just partially glued.

  1. Really pretty colours and I love those dainty blooms. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards and good luck with the DT call.

  2. What a sweet card! The paper pieced flowers are so perfect. Did you fussy cut them?? I think I've paper pieced just once and discovered that I'm a lazy crafter and didn't like to fussy cut. Your card is simply lovely and inspires me to try it again!

    1. Yes Birgit, the flowers were fussy cut! 😊

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! Love the flowers!
