Quilt card

Normally, I try to only post one new card per day - especially when I'm going to be traveling and can't stamp for a while - but today I had to share this card I just finished! I followed a link from Allison's blog to this awesome tutorial for making a quilt card on Nancy's blog. I mean...with her instructions it was just so stinkin' easy! I used my Brocade Background paper to make the quilt, and of course the matching Baroque Motifs set for the center image.

Once I had the strips cut, and the adhesive on the under level it went pretty quick. After adhering all the strips, I decided to use my craft knife and a ruler to cut off the excess because I don't have the guillotine style cutter and I didn't think my trimmer would be a good idea. That worked perfectly. I wanted to add some ribbon or something, but decided that it really didn't add much. Perhaps some piercing around the vanilla layer on the Old Olive would look nice....but at this point I don't want to screw it up, KWIM ??

Supplies: (all supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Brocade Background DSP
Old Olive, Groovy Guava, River Rock, Chocolate Chip marker
Acc: 1 1/4" square punch, Ice rhinenstone brad
