Birthday Quilt- Two Challenges in One!
I hope all of you are having a great week so far!! I have been trying to organize my craft room (I mean craft "store" :-)) this week and in between, making a few cards for some of my favorite challenge sites.
I created this card using the Dynamic Duos DD40 Colors along with the Create withConnie and Mary Thursday CCMC239 Sketch. I know I have said it many times before, but the Design Teams at both of these sites are wonderful-hope you take a moment to visit them.
This card is fairly simple- there is no stamping involved since this is a My Digital Studio (MDS) "hybrid”:
Use the 1 ¼” Square Punch to punch out squares from Whisper White and Basic Black Designer Series Paper (DSP). Cut all of the squares by hand on the diagonal and adhere in the quilt pattern directly onto the Tempting Turquoise DSP.
Trim the “quilt” to approx. 3 1/4"x 3/14” and emboss using the Big Shot™ with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Mount onto a 3 ½” x 3 ½” Basic Black Square.
Use the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock for the vertical panel and also the 5 ¼” square Whisper White card base as well as another piece of Whisper White for the center circle and butterflies. Add the vertical panel along with the quilt focal piece to the card (using Stampin’ Dimensionals for the quilt).
Punch three butterflies out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and adhere them to the card using Mini Glue Dots.
Add the circular floral piece to the center (created with the 1 1/4" and 1" Circle Punch) and add the embossed flower (largest flower from the Boho Blossom Punch). Add a Large Rhinestone to finish off the center of the flower and the smaller Rhinestones for the bodies of the butterflies.
Add the sentiment to the lower left corner (I used a sentiment I had on hand from MDS already printed out and ready to go- love my scraps!) to finish off the card.
