I'm Yael from the Israeli blog Derech Hayetsira.
I started my blog about a year ago, when I began crafting again (mostly cards) during my maternity leave. On my blog I post about activities with kids (I have three adorable kids), interesting events and of course, my projects.
I enjoy Tal's blog and proud to be her guest.
Today I made a card for a new baby using the Paper Piecing Technique.
First, I chose a cardstock to be the base for my card.
Then I folded it in the middle (I want to write inside).
I drew a stork on a piece of white paper.
Then I chose some nice cardstocks and papers for the different parts of the stork (I chose solid papers, because my background is a bit busy).
I copied the different parts on the papers I chose (on the wrong side).
Pay attention to the direction of the stork, it's important to copy all parts in the same direction.
Cut all the parts of the stork.
I glued all the parts together and drew around with a black pen (I think I should have used a thicker pen).
I used thick double sided tape for the eye.
Here's my card -
