Christmas Quilt

Hello, I really can't believe how quickly October went by. I had a workshop last week with Carla and some friends and we made Christmas Cards. One of my favorite ways to showcase our Designer Paper is with the Quilt Cards. They are easy to make and with our Impressions Embossing Folders you can add some texture that makes the quilt look even more real. The Designer Paper I used is Deck the Halls and is in the Holiday Mini. The base of the card is Always Artichoke Card Stock which gives the card a nice rich look. We used the 1 3/4" Square Punch to punch out the Designer Series Paper then attached it to a Whisper White Base and ran it through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die. The Impressions Folder that I used is the Petals A Plenty Folder. We used Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding around the middle of the Quilt. The sentiment is from two stamp sets and I showed the guest how to use the Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the different parts of the tag as well as omitting. We used the Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the tag image from the Tags Til Christmas Stamp Set and omitted the to and from. Then we used the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and added the Merry Christmas to the tag. After stamping the tag we punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. Did you know that you can order the Decorative Label Punch and the Tags Til Christmas Stamp set together and save now through Dec. 16. On the inside of the card we added a Very Vanilla Top Note so that it made the card easier to sign. With one package of Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla Card Stock and Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper you can make 48 Christmas Cards! Wow that is a great way to get started on your cards. I will be back tomorrow with another project and look for some blog candy later this week when I have my 400th post. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions please let me know. I am happy to help. 'Til Tomorrow, Tonya

I love the Top Note quilt cards, but with the Deck the Halls and Petals a Plenty, it's fabulous!! Hope you don't mind if I case it to show at my Open House next week. TFS!
