Patchwork Quilt Themed Cards, great way to use up Paper scraps

Using up retired DSP, don't even remember the exact name of this Bella series. Red, Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette make a great combination
 Also uses the lace ribbon border punch which retired a while ago.
 Soft ribbon roses from the flower trim are also gone, I will miss them.
using up some Baja Breeze cardstock, some Attic Boutique Collection DSP and 2 of the sets of squares are stamped with the Elements of Style images. 

Baja Breeze, Garden Green Elements of Style stampset and buttons embosslits. One non SU paper
My latest class making patchwork inspired cards.
 The DSP is Fan Fair which is soon retiring, Island indigo ink for this one,
 the red version is in the top photo with the trio of cards.
I loved how everyone had slightly different versions,
with different emphasis on where the solid coloured segments should go

Lattice Die, Baja Breeze and Buttons Embosslits
Inchies make great patchwork and use up small scraps very effectively. I had lots of fun mixing and matching different patterns.
For some cards i sponged the edges of each square before adhering to the base layer.
once assembled I ran the patchwork through the Bigshot with an Embossing Folder with a detailed texture to give the appearance of a quilt.
Spectacularly easy!!!
thanks for looking, Liz
