I'm just lovin' these quilt dies! This card is for a friend, Tina, who happens to be one of the newest member of the Gigglers & she loves quilt cards. This die set has 7 pieces & cuts very clean plus they're made in the USA. I used the biggest die, which has a small scalloped border to cut the DSP then adhered it to my card base using liquid glue. I've always been a tape runner fan but am gradually converting to liquid because it gives you a little time to move it if you don't get it lined up on the first try. For the other layer I used 2 dies together. I laid the larger die, which has a pierced border, down first then I placed the die with the 6 quilt squares inside. After making sure they were lined up, I taped them down so the border would be even. I love using this tape because its removable but doesn't leave residue on my projects. I cut the inside die again in a different color so I had a contrasting border around the quilt squares. I glued the outside stitched border to the DSP first. Then I glued the grid in the coordinating color down then the quilt squares. The pieces are inlaid so they fit together like a puzzle! You can also use the center shapes for other projects. To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment on white card stock & punched it out with a tiny tag punch then tied it on with baker's twine. If you've never tired one of these cards you should...they are so easy & fun!
Thanks for looking!

Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!
