Quilted Look


Hi all, this is Vickie.  I had some new embossing folders and really wanted to come up with a card to use them.  The embossing folders set is from Cricut Cuttlebug and is called Fabric Swatches.

The base of this card is Natural Sky.  This paper has a parchment sort of look.  The main image is also stamped on the Natural Sky.  The dark red layer is Basis Burgundy.  The one part of the patchwork is also Basis Burgundy.  The dark green layer is Emerald Green Linen.  I love the linen line because it has a sort of material look.  You can also see from the picture that it has a wonderful weight for distressing the edges.

The mauve color cardstock is Royal Mauve Linen.  I love this rich color .  I did mount the embossed squares on a piece of scrap cardstock because it was easier to get them lined up and attached to the card.

I will say also that the Stampin’ Up Cherry Cobbler ink matched the Burgundy and the Adirondack Earthtones in Bottle matched the Emerald Green perfectly. The stamps used came from Stampin’ Up.

The added ribbon is 1/2 Squares and Stitches in Antique Gold and Olive.
