Quilted Card


This card is made for Sharyn's Stitch It Up Challenge at StampTV. I would like to give credit to Dawn McVey at Papertrey Ink for the design which you can watch at YouTube:

Quilted Cards by PTI


Cut pattern papers (4-5 different papers) into 1-1/2 inch squares. Lay them out diagonally on your card if you wish, leaving a 'blank' square space here and there. Use dry adhesive (to prevent buckling) to adhere your squares to your card.

When you are done adhering your design to the card stock or onto a layering panel, turn it over and trim all the papers that stick out from the card with some scissors. Now run it through an embossing folder that has a pattern resembling quilting - it can be circles, squares, flowers, snowflakes - anything with a small, continuous pattern. It helps to give the quilted card dimension just like a real quilt.

Embellish as desired. I used a ruler and a Memento marker in Bamboo, the bullet side not brush side of the marker, and drew double stitch lines into the white spaces. I glued small, clear rhinestones into all the corners of the quilt pieces. What's a spring quilt without butterflies fluttering around the design? Wanting gold butterflies, I used direct to paper method and dragged the Delicata gold ink pad across white cardstock, both sides. Then I punched the butterflies out, bent them, and used rolled up sticky dots to adhere them to the quilted card.
