CQC120- Two Cards with One "Quilt"
This week’s ColourQCQC120 Challenge colors are rich and vibrant and the inspiration photo reminds me of the 70’s (oh no, how can I be old enough to remember the 70’s…where did the time go?? :-)).
I decided to create a quilt card and the panel I made was too large for one card, so I was able to create two quick, easy cards.
The first step was to create the “quilt” panel with several squares of Designer Series Paper (I used Rich Razzleberry and Wisteria Wonder) along with Island Indigo and Bravo Burgundy cardstock punched out with the 1 ¼’ Square Punch. Adhere the squares in your chosen design to Whisper White cardstock and emboss with the Big Shot™ using the Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Lightly sand with the Sanding Block to expose the white core on the Designer Series Paper (remember the core will not appear on the colored SU! cardstock since it has a solid color core).
For the first card, layer the quilted panel with additional Wisteria Wonder Designer Series panel, a punched border with the Eyelet Scallop Punch (use the Crimper Tool to add more texture), 5/8” Satin Ribbon bow and the embossed focal image.
To create the focal image, de-static a piece of Whisper White with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the bee image from Nature’s Pace with Versamark® ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Burgundy Embossing Powder (retired) and heat with the Heat Tool. Once cooled, emboss with the Big Shot™ and the Oval Designer Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Gently tear around the edges, attach to the card and add the pearls to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Nature’s Pace, Short and Sweet
Ink: Versamark™, Bravo Burgundy, Stampin’ Write Markers- Wisteria Wonder, Island Indigo
Paper: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder DSP
Accessories: Big Shot™, Designer Frame (Oval) and Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches- 1 1/4” Square, Large Oval, Eyelet Border, 5/8” Burgundy Satin Ribbon (from my stash), Embossing Buddy®, Heat Tool, Burgundy Embossing Powder (retired), Pearls
Since I still had a piece of the quilted panel remaining from this card, along with all of the other cardstock, I decided to create another quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card.
Mount the sanded panel onto Whisper White, Island Indigo and another layer of Whisper White. Add the 5/8” Burgundy Satin Bow and adhere to the Bravo Burgundy and Island Indigo panels.
Add the sentiment and Rhinestones to finish off the card.

Thanks again for visiting- I had a great time making these cards plus two more for a few other challenges (I will post the other two tomorrow so I hope you will have the time to come back and check them out!)
Have a great weekend and I hope you are able to find some time for relaxing and stamping!
