Quilted Top Note

Hello to you, and thank you very much for dropping by. I made this card for my MIL's birthday which is coming the end of February. Since I already had the new Springtime Vintage DSP out, and it's matching colors, I wanted to keep using it. Then the idea of a "faux quilt" came to mind. This technique has been around for several years, and I had yet to try it...why I waited is beyond me, as it's very easy. I punched squares, then adhered them to a Very Vanilla CS rectangle. This was then cut out using my SU Top Note Die. To make it even more "quilt" like, I embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Perfect Punches stamp set. See the pretty border on the card base? It's the newest embossing folder found in the now current Occassions Mini called Framed Tulips.

Since I'm on a bit of a roll you'll be seeing more creations using my newest goodies. Have a wonderful day!
