Baby Quilt


Good Morning!  Hope the sun is shining where you are today.

I've a baby card to share with you.  The Friday Mashup are asking you to

Make a project using the "Quilted Cards Technique"
Or Make a project using "Something that's been forgotten (sitting in your stash forever)"
Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Quilted card with something you've forgotten about"                            

So I had great fun making my quilted card.  I stamped Fox and Friends animals in Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, So Saffron and Certainly Celery.  Then punched out the animals using 1 1/4" Punch.  I also punched another 4 squares.  Then die cut the letters using Timeless Type Junior Alphabets and attached these to the squares.  I also punched squares out of Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper and cut these in half.  Then formed a pattern onto copier paper and attached the squares to it.  I ran this through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Then further trimmed my "quilt" to fit the card base.  

I added a border of So Saffron and edged the bottom with the Scallop Edge Punch.  Then added another border of Certainly Celery before attaching to a Marina Mist card base. 

To finish I attached a rhinestone brad to one corner, which is my forgotten item.

Thanks for dropping by today and Welcome to Victoria.  I appreciate you following my little blog.  Hope you pop by often.

Thanks for the special mention :) I have just got the lattice embossing folder and am madly embossing everything I can with it! It's so versatile! I love the quilt you've made for a baby - and it is stunning with the Beau Chateau papers.
