Life here has been difficult and I have had to put my stamping on the back burner for a little while. I have only been able to do the bare necessities to keep my monthly groups going. Boy I sure have missed spending time creating in my craft room.
Last week things began to slow down, so I have had the time to put together a post for today. My Stampin’ Sistas group wants to do quilt cards next month. One of the gals is a quilter, and has created beautiful quilts for the sistas. They are gorgeous and I am in awe of her work. The plan next month is to share ideas of how she can marry the two crafts and have some fun! Do you think this one will inspire her to get busy with a Christmas idea or two?
I placed quilt batting between the two layers of cardstock and sewed at the seams. Each square is puffy and it really looks like a quilt. The ruffle squares around the quilt bottom were distressed and folded up a bit. The card is 5 1/4″ square and is my first attempt at stitching a card. There are so many inspiring ideas out there, I just had to give it a try. It was lots of fun and I plan to make several more to share next month. Hope you enjoy!Card Recipe: Stamps: Delightful Decorations, Four the Holidays Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Garden Green, Merry Moments DP Ink: Garden Green, Real Red Accessories: Gold Cord, Ornament and Corner Rounder Punches, Dimensionals, Gold Brads
