Patchwork frame with washi tape...



I love patchwork and one day I will make myself a 'Cath Kidston' style quilt.  But in the meantime I'll settle for a card.  I've found an easy way to make a patchwork frame with washi tape.
Here's how I made it.


Cut a piece of card slightly smaller than the card front and stick different size pieces of coordinating washi tape around the outside edge.  The beauty of washi tape is that you can reposition it if you make a mistake!


Cut out a rectangle from the centre and there you have a patchwork frame.

This is my card for the 'Anything Goes' challenge that launches today over on Let's Craft and Create blog.  I do hope you can join us for this challenge, check out the blog for the details, some fabulous designs from the team and news of our guest designer.
