It's time for the dreaded "Q" day at 30 Days of Holidays - Beccy's Place and I'm doing another "Quilt" theme. Last year, I used an image of a quilted stuffed animal for this card but this year I decided on the spice-filled mitten, one of Beccy's images, and a Quilt die from Gina Marie to make the background.
I have a crafting friend who loves making quilts (as did I for many years) and she has even made quilt-pattern stencils for her scrapbooking. I don't have that kind of patience and would much rather use a die (especially since I only have less than half a dozen stencils in my entire collection!)
I cut two different colors of CS, plus two different scraps of Christmas dp which I had in my stash. Unfortunately, one of those scraps was only big enough for a single cut and I needed a total of three full die cuts of each dp to complete the background. Consequently, the left side of the card has more of the lighter dp in places where I would have used the darker dp if I'd had enough of it. Sigh...
The image was cut with a QuicKutz die and layered onto the quilt. I added a hand tied bow made from lace and wrapped with satin ribbon in the middle.
