Q for Quilted

     There are certain letters of the alphabet which are nearly impossible to use as themes in crafting and card making, and "Q" is one of them.  "X" is another and I'm not looking forward to that one!  But I've managed one more card in the Month of Holidays at Beccy's Place and I thank my years of Quilting for the inspiration.  Beccy has a whole zoo of Quilted animals and I'm using the deer (reindeer?) for today's Quilted card.


     All of the Quilting is done by paper piecing with 4 different Christmas papers and beige or tan ProMakers to fill in the areas I didn't paper piece.  I used both gold and silver paint pens to color the jingle bell collar and bells.  After that was done, I fussy cut the reindeer.

     I die cut the light background piece (Spellbinders) and mounted the deer onto it with dimensional tape.  I added that whole piece onto the forest green card base, then added ribbon and 3D embellies.

Oh my! I tried to do this technique with the same reindeer and it came out terrible. Yours is so beautiful. I think I was trying to use too many colors. Great card!

I LOVE what you've done with this little deer NC, it's gorgeous! The patterns and colours work beautifully together, I particularly like the holly on the white background. Great idea to "quilt" an image... I'm sure a few other people will be inspired by your idea. Love it!
Cheers,
Beccy
