I am loving the Christmas Quilt stamp set and co-ordinating Quilt Builder framelit dies and they are incredibly versatile and definitely not just for Christmas. Today I have used the bundle to make an encouragement card for a friend who is having a bit of a tough time at the moment. She is a quilter so will totally get this card.
I began by taking the intricate square die and the square frame die from the Quilt Builder framelit dies, placing one inside the other using a piece of Washi Tape to keep the 2 dies in place before running it through the Big Shot using Berry Burst cardstock, Fresh Fig cardstock, Whisper White cardstock and Pool Party cardstock.
I chose the Berry Burst intricate frame to make my card and added to a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2⅞” by 2⅞” which I had already covered with Fast Fuse Adhesive. I then added the different colour pieces, Fresh Fig, Whisper White and Pool Party into the negative spaces like a jigsaw puzzle. There was a tiny strip of Whisper White to trim off on 2 sides using scissors. I was really happy with the effect and the bonus is you have all the pieces to make 3 more panels in different colour ways.
I took the panel and ran it through the Big Shot using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder which just added so much texture and pulled the whole piece together.
I placed the panel onto a Thick Whisper White card base and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Berry Burst ink. I then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the embossed panel and added it to the card front. Gorgeous, really hope my friend likes it.
