More quilt cards

It's snowing again this morning - looks like we're in a slow-motion snow globe here; the flakes have been gently falling since we got up.  Gives everything a nice clean look again!  So of course, I'm still playing with Curtain Call's Cozy Quilt challenge.


I found the neatest tutorial to make this Pinwheel Pattern, and it's really fun and easy!  Thank you, Darlene!

Pinwheel pattern

My papers are from Pebbles Family Ties, and I added a yellow enamel dot to the center, and did some faux stitching around the edges after placing it on my card.  The sentiment is Hero Arts, stamped in their pool ink, and the embossing folder I used is Cuttlebug's Wicker Weave - the dimensions worked perfectly!
  
For my 2nd card, I revisited a pattern called Rail Fence that I've done before.  It occurred to me that instead of cutting out lots of strips of paper, I could achieve the same look with washi tape.

As I often did when I was making a quilt, I let a particular pattern be the source of choosing all the other ones.  In this case, the brown is actually a fabric tape.  The others are various regular washis.  I embossed this with a big 6" Crafter's Companion Dot embossing folder.  I centered the whole thing with a Chrissy and a Leanna butterfly die from Simon, and added a button candy dot from Pebbles.  

Thanks for visiting me today - hope you're keeping cozy!

  1. Lovely quilt cards again, Lin!

    You're right - this morning's snow looked like we were in a snow globe. I could see those big flakes swirling around outside the windows while sitting in church and was hoping the roads were not getting covered. They were just wet and the drive home was fine.

    Love the washi tape card!!
