Good morning! I have always enjoyed making cards with quilt designs and today I use a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions stamp set on a quilt card. I played with the Stitched Triangles dies and the retiring Peony Garden designer series paper to experiment and come up with a quilt square block for my card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
What do you think? This was a lot of fun and a lot of experimenting, but I’m pretty happy with the result. I started with a square of the speckled Petal Pink Peony Garden designer series paper and adhered strips of Basic White along the right side and top. I cut two of the second smallest right triangles from the Stitched Triangles dies from the floral Peony Garden paper and adhered them to the lower left corner of the panel. I cut 8 of the smallest right triangle from the Stitched Triangles dies and adhered them to the top and side of the panel in the Flying Geese quilt pattern.
I cut the flower from the Pierced Blooms dies and adhered it to the top right corner. I cut a small Pierced Blooms dies flower and adhered it on top. Then I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Petal Pink mat to border the square. Then I adhered it to a Basic White panel for another border. I cut the larger pierced flower from Petal Pink and the smaller flower from Basic White and adhered it to the lower left square.
I embossed a Petal Pink panel and adhered it to the front of a Petal Pink card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Oval Occasions stamp set and cut it out with the Messages Die. This is the label that has stitched sides and it was easy to do – just line up the stamped card stock with the label and run it through your die cutting machine. I adhered the label to the back of the quilt panel and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the front with two Elegant Gems on the flowers and a white twine bow.
For the inside of the card, I cut 8 more speckled triangles with the smallest right triangle die and adhered them to the side of a Basic White panel in the Flying Geese pattern. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I loved the Christmas Quilt bundle that Stampin’ Up! had a few years back! This took more effort, but allowed me to be more creative in coming up with a design! I wanted to incorporate the Pierced Blooms flower dies because they resemble appliqué flowers and the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder gives a fabric-like texture that really adds to the quilted look. What could be nicer than sending a quilt with hugs and kisses?
