Tuesday Tutorial: Patchwork Christmas Card

Hi Everyone it's Stephanie here today with another Tuesday Tutorial.  Believe it or not Christmas is right around the corner, 91 days I believe!! Right now that may seem like a ways away but believe me it will be here before we know it.

This week we are featuring the new Doodlebug's North Pole Christmas Collection, and it has got to be my favorite christmas line. I love the modern prints and the traditional colors with pops of grey, Doodlebug has outdone themselves once again.

For my tutorial I am showing you how I put together my first Christmas card of the season. This line made it so easy because everything goes together so well.

Here it is:
SO lets get started!
Step One: Start with a card base, 4 1/2 x 3 3/4  piece of white cardstock and another white piece measuring 4x 3 1/2.  Section off your 4x3.5 piece of cardstock to use for your sunburst template. I left a 1 inch gap at the bottom and divided the upper portion. Once Completed cut the pieces apart to use as a template for your patterned paper.

Step Two: Use template pieces to cut your patterned paper pieces. Once done arrange them and adhear them together on the 4.5x 3 3/4 piece of white cardstockleaving an even white border around it. Then sew and adhear to card base.
Step Three: Using the circle Frames Cardstock Sticker place on white cardstock circle cut at 2 3/4, then punch 1 1/2 inch circle in the center. Add pop dots to back of frame and place on another round piece of white cardstock as the background.
Step Four: Adhear frame to card and place tiny pines doodle-pop in center. Add sentiment using mini rubons on white cardstock strip to card and that's it!
Easy Peasy :)

Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Beautiful card! Love the patchwork. What kind of sewing machine do you use for sewing with paper?

  2. Darling and beautiful, Stephanie! *LOVE*

  3. Thanks for all the love ladies, you guys made my day!
    Carol, to answer your question about my sewing machine, it's just a reg sewing machine that you would sew fabic with. (Though I believe mine has seen may more paper in it's lifetime than actual fabric. Hope that helps :)

    1. I thought I might be the only one who sews more paper than fabric. When I went to have my machine tuned up the guy was telling me this cheap thread I had in there wasn't the best quality for sewing (fabric) and was shocked to hear I hardly ever sew on fabric. :)
