Last night was craft night, and after our tea and home baked gingery plum cake with Chantilly cream (recipe here on my baking blog), we made paper pieced patchwork cards. I decided to make a set of notelets, and a box to match, using these pretty Teresa Collins magazine freebie papers.
The patchwork on the notelets was simply paper pieced, then run through an Embossabilities embossing folder, and gently inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink to pick out the embossed pattern. I've made lots of patchwork cards before, but never thought to emboss them until now, I got the idea from Pinterest. They look much nicer in real life, the camera just doesn't pick it up all that well.
