I’m back today to share more paper quilt greeting cards with you. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that in my last two posts I’ve been sharing some cards I made using products in the new Quilted Christmas product suite.
I have two more paper quilt greeting cards to share today and here is the first. This card uses paper from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper pack (144613).
- The entire quilt element of this card is “pieced” with cardstock pieces.
- After assembling the quilt design onto the card front I ran it back through the Big Shot using another die piece from the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies (144673). This piece added the stitching lines to the center image.
- The spool of thread and needle are also die cuts in the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies set. The sentiment is found in the Christmas Quilt stamp set (144793).
- I created the border scallop using the Ticket Tear Border Punch (143718).
Here’s the final paper quilt greeting card from this bunch of quilt cards:
- This die cut design is completely filled in with paper pieces. I will again emphasize the importance of keeping the designer paper pieces in order after cutting. This design was quite a puzzle to piece back together so the paper design made sense!!
- Compare this card to the one above and notice how the placement of the die cut pieces makes a difference in the pattern of the completed design. On this card, the four corner squares appear as though they are coming out toward you.
- I used the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (144687) to create the overall quilt effect on the card front. Create your paper design BEFORE running through the Big Shot with the embossing folder. Using this technique makes the paper pieces look like they are embedded in the background.
- Sentiment is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set (142924).
Here are links to the other two blog posts about this set of quilt cards:
