I don't know why but it has been quite a long week.. No particular reason just long... So for today I am playing along with Always Playing with Paper sketch challenge and Pals Paper Arts color challenge. Here is my card for tonight!
|These are remnants from a previous project. I couldn't let them go to |
waste so I used them for another card.
|The card is a bit different from the sketch in that |
I used a portrait layout vs. the sketches landscape layout..
But I feel the essence of the design is clear.
|Dry embossing the quilt base gives it an authentic feel|
of a quilt. The brown banner and embellishment look black
but in actuality is a very dark chocolate color following the
color challenge as much as I could.
|I thought the sentiment was well suited for the card. the button embellishments|
are just a nice added touch to this country quilt.
As you can probably surmise, paper piecing was an important part of this design. The lattice die cut from Stampin' Up! was used to create the quilt. After each piece was placed I ran it through my machine to dry emboss the card for more texture. I think this card feels like country meets white modern and I think they do get along..
Thank you so much for joining me tonight and I do appreciate your visit. If you feel so inclined to leave a comment that would be appreciated as well.. Take care everyone and we will see you soon!
All the best,
