A Christmas Quilt- Four Punches, Two Embossing Folders and a Whole Lot of Fun!
I have had quite a few busy weeks with swap cards and a quilt card class but I wanted to take the time to create a card using the Dynamic Duos #28 Color Challenge and the SplitcoastStampers SC409 Sketch. Again, if you have not been directed here from either of those sites, I hope you will take some time to check out the Design Team samples as well as the other entries/gallery- what a wonderful example of how two colors can be used in so many ways not to mention the multiple interpretations of the sketch!
Using the 1 ¼” Square Punch, I used squares from Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Sahara Sand DSP and retired Christmas DSP to create my paper quilt.
Once you layer the squares (cut into triangles) and create your quilt pattern, ink the interior of the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder with Sahara Sand Classic Ink and emboss with the Big Shot™. Layer the paper quilt onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Sahara Sand (alternating layers ending with Cherry Cobbler).
Ink the interior of the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder again with Sahara Sand and emboss a piece of Sahara Sand DSP.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Large Scallop Edgelit™ Die and cut a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock. Ink the interior of the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (Lace) and emboss the scalloped piece of Sahara Sand.
Adhere this panel to the embossed Sahara Sand DSP, add the ½” Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.
Add the mounted circle of DSP and sentiment to the paper quilt, add the ½” Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding triple bow and adhere to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Once I chose the design for the paper quilt, this card was fairly quick and easy to create. I may choose to add an Antique Brad and additional "antiquing"/sponging on those that will be hand delivered but this card should be fairly postage friendly :-).
Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful week and find some time to relax and create!
