I love it when I'm able to make one card to work for two challenges. I wasn't going to make a "No Sew-Quilted" card for Make It Monday #159, but after looking at the beautiful cards everyone has been posting all week, I knew I wanted to make one, if I had time over the weekend.
Dynamic Duos Challenge #98 is calling for Stampin' Up's "Wisteria Wonder" and "So Saffron". As I was mulling over these two colors and what I wanted to do, the light bulb went off and so here I am with my "Wisteria Wonder and So Saffron No Sew Quilted" card.
I used Gina K's "Pure Luxury Ivory" card stock for the base. I cut a white piece of typing paper to use as the backing of my quilt. I started punching out SU's "Wisteria Wonder" and "So Saffron" hexagons with SU's "Hexagon" punch. I punched out "Pure Luxury Ivory" hexagons, too. I attached the hexagons to the white typing paper to make my quilt pattern. After all the hexagons were taped down, I used SU's "Soft Swirls" background stamp with VersaMark and embossed it with clear embossing powder over the hexagon quilt pattern. I cut out hearts from SU's Sizzix "Fashionable Hearts" embosslits in both "Wisteria Wonder" and "So Saffron" and attached them to the "Pure Ivory" hexagons. I ran the quilt pattern through the Cuttlebug with QuicKutz "Retro Diamonds" embossing folder. I finished off the card by adding a piece of vellum that I stamped with PTI's "Think Big Favorites #24" happy birthday in SU's "Wisteria Wonder" ink and quickly covered it with clear embossing powder to make it pop a bit. I attached it to the front of the card and then added the purple baker's twine to finish off the card.
It was such a fun card to make. A little labor intensive, but well worth it. I really love the way it turned out.
Thank you for stopping by and do check out all the beautiful "No Sew Quilted" cards at Make It Monday #159 and at Dynamic Duos Challenge #98 this week.
