Patchwork Petals Quilt Cards: S5-537
Becca Feeken has done it again with her Home Sweet Quilt Collection! I had so much fun planning and creating these colorful cards.
For my first card, I wanted a stained glass effect so I used the inlaid die cutting technique.
My Stained Glass Inlaid Die Cutting Technique
- I started by cutting my Patchwork Petals (S5-537) frame out of navy cardstock and then die cut 5 more colors (aqua, lime, lavender, pink and orange).
- I die cut two backgrounds: 5″ x 5 1/2″ and then die cut a square into one of the backgrounds so I could inlay the design.
- Stamp your sentiment on the panel with the square opening. I used Ranger Denim ink to stamp my Waffle Flowers Rainbow sentiment. I think the sentiment has been discontinued, but it is a set I still love using.
- Glue the background with the square opening and sentiment onto the second background.
- Inset/glue the navy frame into the square opening. I used liquid glue.
- Inset/glue each piece of the quilt.
- Using craft foam, glue your card panel to a 5 1/2″ x 6″ card base.
I had lots of extra pieces left over so I created a bright sympathy card by die cutting a white panel (frame and background) and then using three colors from my leftover pieces.
For the Layered Windmill, I created an Octagon shaped card, again with inlaid diecutting. I followed the same process as in Card #1, but then I trimmed the card’s edges with my paper trimmer so that I had a card with 8 sides.
I made two versions, one is white, blue, lime and orange and the other is blue, lime and white.
