Bargello Revisited

Bargello Revisited
It has been several years since I’ve used the bargello technique on a card (you can find a great bargello tutorial on I thought it would be fun for the small shoebox swap I’m attending at Fort Meade today. Since there will only be 11 of us, the cards don’t have to be 10-minute cards. We have all day to make them (and eat, and laugh, etc.)!

I didn’t want to cover up the background, so I just finished off the card with a sentiment on a decorative label and a die-cut flower. Hope the girls will like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Yes, I loved your card, colors are great and haven’t done that technique in a while. Great card.

    Vera’s DH here. I made one of these cards all by myself from a leftover kit from the shoebox swap. Vera has very good directions. She wasn’t even home when I made the card!
