Cameo Quilt Card

Hi Everyone,

Here is another card made with one of my favourite colour combos. This was done with whisper white, cameo coral, real red, and old olive cardstock. I punched out 1 1/2" squares using my CM square maker. When I had three of each colour I ran the squares through my cuttlebug using the d'vine swirls, distressed stripes, script, and swiss dots folders. Then I glued them onto a piece of scrap cardstock that I had cut so it was aobut 1/4" bigger than my bigz top note die. In order for the quilt to look most appealing I started with the centre two squares and worked out from there. When I had all of the squares where I wanted them I lined up the middle two squares with the middle of my top note die and ran it through the cuttlebug. Now I have a patchwork quilt top note die.

To accent my card I used my polkadot punches stamp set. The centre of my punched flower is covered with an extra brad topper from the build a brad set.

"Smile" was stamped with chocolate chip ink.
