Bargello Birthday Card

Hello crafting friends! I enjoyed this week's challenge at Stamp TV so much that I decided to make another card using the "bargello" technique.

This time I chose some brown and turquoise digital patterned papers and created my strips. The inspiration came from a unique card I saw on line using this technique. I used the step layout to present the bargello pattern. My sentiment was computer generalted and then cut with a die from Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments. I added some little flower petals that were cut from some Leane Creatief dies and added a pearl in the centers. The butterfly was cut with a Memory Box Kensington Branch die using one of the digital papers that the strips were created with. When my focal panel was done it was matted with turquoise card stock and then adhered to a brown card base.

This was such a fun card to make. What makes it fun is that there are so many variations to this technique. I hope you'll give it a try if you haven't already. You will be pleased with the results.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll come back often! Make it a great day!
