Quilted Birthday Greetings
While browsing the splitcoaststampers site, I came across a quilted card by lindathecreator. She referenced the tutorial at Nancy Riley's blog. I just had to try this! I have a very good friend who sews and she has a birthday coming up at the end of this month. The base card is Bordering Blue card stock. The "quilt" is made from scraps (aren't they all?) of various papers, 7 different papers cut 3/8" wide, 4 strips each. After I made the square, I ran it through an embossing folder on the big shot to give it some texture. I decided to add "lace" to the edges (white card stock with my border punch). The greeting is stamped with Not Quite Navy, punched with the scalloped square punch and attached with dimensionals. I'm really pleased with the way this came out.
