A Pittsburgh girl couldn’t ask for a better combination of colors than this week’s Dynamic Duos offered: Basic Black and Daffodil Delight (that’s close enough to Black and Gold for me!)
I’ve been itching to make a quilt card and decided today was the day. As I leafed through my DSP though, I wasn’t finding anything that “felt right” for what I had envisioned. So, it was time to design my own DSP! I used the retired Netting Background stamp for my corner pieces and the lacy flower from Mixed Bunch for the quilt design and center flower. The quilt is comprised of nine 1-inch squares; four squares were cut in half diagonally and four squares were cut in half horizontally (or vertically, whichever way you choose to hold your square 😉 The middle square remained whole. I used a 3 x 3 inch square of Daffodil Delight for the quilt base and built the card from there!
TIP: If you don’t have adhesive paper (which I do not), it’s easiest to apply double sided tape to your entire 3×3 base and then assemble your pieces on top of the sticky base, as opposed to trying to apply adhesive to each individual piece.
Any questions? Please feel free to ask!
