Hello card

Hello everyone,

It is the last day of the Pattern Play course already



and today we were asked to do some paper quilting or weaving. I recently tried paper quilting on this card



after seeing it done on Pinterest, so today I tried a different method we were shown by Kristina and came up with this card.


I made the 'hello' from a Papertrey Ink die but after I cut it in the blue card, I found it got a little lost on the card so I cut it again in black card and offset it to give a little shadow which helps it pop.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. We are supposed to be going to the Lake District for a few days tomorrow but it is snowing heavily there at the moment, and I have my fingers crossed for a quick thaw. Oh for spring to finally come!

Hugs

  3. Fabulous cards. Cutting that sentiment a second time was a brilliant idea, and I love your patchwork pattern. Your first card is just lovely, too. It really reminds me of a quilt.

  4. Using that black shadow on the bright blue hello made all the difference, Carol. Your card is fantastic! Absolutely love that white, white space, too!! This is pinnable art!

  12. The embossed paper is a nice touch on the quilt card-it really adds a nice texture. The shadow idea on the second card is a great technique-and so simple! Great cards!!!
