Over at One Stop Crafts Challenge, the theme for the challenge today is 'Patterns', chosen by our lovely team mate Kathryn. This should give you loads of choice as there is an almost infinite number to choose from... spots, stripes, heaps of different checks, zig zags... the list goes on. Personally I've always been a sucker for stripes, hence my choice for this card.
I am including it in the challenge from Stamp with fun - Card for a man or boy.
I believe the images are Whimsey Doodles and the lovely stripy paper is a free download from Fred She Said. The paper piecing on the chair, uses a piece of Cuddly Buddly paper.
The ribbon was a birthday gift from a lovely bloggy friend and the corners were made from Cuttlebug Vintage 2x2 dies. There are 4 in the set... two corners and two squares. These are from one of the squares, cut in half diagonally with a few of the cut bits trimmed, to make it look as though it was meant to be a corner!!
I always put double sided tape on the back of the card before cutting fiddly die cuts like these, then all I have to do once they've been cut is to peel and stick!


  1. Lovely card. Top tip about the tape - wish I knew that before I had a fight with a corner this morning! That one never made it onto my card.

  2. Hi Chrissie, what a fab card. Love the corners. Thanks for joining us at stamp with fun this week. Hugs, Denise x

  3. Lovely card Chrissie, that chair looks so comfy!


  4. Very great card - love the image and the design. Thanks for joining stamp with fun.

  5. the tip about the tape on the back of fiddly die cuts is inspired - and here i've been faffing about for ages... LOL - thanks for the tip.

    Love the armchair image too.
