DD91 Happy Birthday Quilt
Wow! Another week has flown by and it is time for the new DD91 “Triple Threat” Dynamic Duo Challengecombines three (that’s right, three) bright and beautiful colors- Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi.
I love this fun color combo and actually created two cards- I will share the other one a bit later :-)
Again, I hope that you will find the time to stop by and check out the rest of the Dynamic Duos Design Team projects and create one of your own using this week’s colors - we would love to have you join us!!
To create this card:
Layer a piece of Wild Wasabi onto a piece of Basic Black card stock and mount onto your card base (I used Whisper White but you cannot see the base in the photo).
The next step, create the color blocks for the background (don't forget to check your scraps :-)) I used pieces of Tangerine Tango Designer Series Paper (DSP) layered onto scraps of Basic Black and previously embossed pieces of Melon Mambo (also from my scraps that had been embossed using the Big Shot™ along with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) again, layered onto scraps of Basic Black cardstock- have I said it enough? I love my scraps!! :-) I organize my scraps in sandwich size ziplock bags and keep them with card front size pieces of the same color cardstock. Easy to find and easy to use!!
Layer a piece of Whisper White cardstock onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock for the vertical layer on top of the color blocks.
Emboss a piece of Whisper White using Big Shot™ with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. Add the sentiment from Express Yourself (stamped in Basic Black onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Large Oval Punch, layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, also punched with the Large Oval Punch). Adhere the sentiment on the side of the embossed Whisper White panel on the side.
Mount the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the focal quilt block using the Big Shot™ with the Quilt Die (from W9Studios), cut four quilts, one from each of the colors along with one from Basic Black cardstock. Assemble the quilt onto a piece of Whisper White using Two-Way Glue (do not be too heavy handed on the glue).
Once assembled, layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and emboss with the Big Shot™ and the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mount to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the paper bow from embossed Melon Mambo cardstock (again, embossed with the Big Shot™ along with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder)- punch two ovals using the Large Oval Punch, a small scrap for the center and a longer rectangular piece for the tails. Cut the longer rectangular piece in half and create the points for the tails using the Hexagon Punch. Adhere the two larger ovals in half using Mini Glue Dots or a Hot Glue Gun(use your Bone Folder first to softly curve the cardstock). Adhere the two ovals to the small piece of cardstock scrap and add the two tails. Add the Antique Brad to the center to finish off the bow and glue onto the card front.
Add the Pearl to the center of the quilt to finish off the card.
