Morris Patchwork Elephant


I hope you are all doing well ? 

I have a friend who has just given birth to a baby boy and fortunately while 'Lockdown' was on, she kindly told me, what she was having, so I could make her a card, whilst I had time. 

I have done a couple of 'Harlequin' cards using leftover scraps, but with the scraps I had, I looked around Youtube for a different design and found this one Starburst / Sunburst design : - I must confess though that it completely did my head in, as I did it by hand, where apparently MFT do a die, that cuts each strip of paper perfectly, but my lovely friend Kelly didn't tell me about it until , after I had made it 😏

Stay safe and well, thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

This is really lovely Sam, love the design and all the pretty pieces of the papers, super image too and the way you have done the card looks to me that you didn't need the expense of the die at all.

A beautiful card Sam, pretty papers and cute image - it's so much more satisfying to have created the sunburst without a die.
