I like to cut patterned paper into rectangles [blocks], mat the rectangles on either a solid or another pattern, and then use embellishments to connect the rectangles. I used this technique on the card above. The big chevron print is divided into two blocks, and the blocks are connected by the round sticker.

By the way, this is a Christmas card, though it may look more like a housewarming card. In December my husband and I donated to the charity Habitat for Humanity, in honor of some of our relatives. This donation was in lieu of a Christmas gift. Since I didn't have a physical gift to wrap and place under the tree for these relatives, I made them this handmade card--with a habitat/home theme--and put that under the tree instead.
I think this is the last Christmas card from 2013 that I have to share on my blog. I have one more Christmas-related project to share, though, so look for that in a future post. See you then!
