Whew! Happy New Year! I took the weekend off to spend the last couple days with my kids and had a little time to myself. The boys are back in school today so I decided to play in a challenge!
Today Holly our new Technique Challenge hostess came up with the idea of creating a card using "paper quilting". What a perfect idea for the quilter that I am. I couldn't wait to play. At Christmas time, I made a doll quilt to give to one of the special needs children at our church. My Pastor was delighted to see that I made a doll quilt with a matching pillow for her.
I created a card from the Windmill doll quilt shown in the picture using coordinating dp's today. I used a 1 inch square punch to punch out 12 flowered and 12 yellow blocks. To make it easier I thought was to punch out some green and pink blocks, glue them, and trim the access off. These were mounted onto a white piece of c/s. Once glued all in place. I forced the cb Swirl folder onto the design. I forgotten about the thickness after I had glued all the pieces onto the white c/. I added 1/4 seems for the edging of flowered dp to the base of the card. I added a piece of green felt ribbon and tied. I felt like it needed something else, so I stamped the phrase with a colored marker, adhered to piece of dp, and attached it using foam tape. Adhered to card. This took a bit longer than what I expected but I like the outcome! Thanks Holly for the wonderful challenge! Thanks for dropping by!
What do you think?
