Because I wanted this to look like a baby card, I used the cute Swiss dot embossing folder (Cuttlebug) and colored in baby room colors (they are actually a bit softer than this photo). It just screams baby girl to me! My first born was a girl and I loved things like this for her crib. The All Mothers stamps set has every family name for women and they fit perfectly in the small rectangles of the Log Cabin Quilt die.
For an extra card today, I made this Star Quilt easel card.
The quilt dies are so fun to play mix and match with and the new papers are like going into a fabric store and seeing all the calico prints perfect for quilting.
I love the colors too! Soft sagey/aqua green, peach, and tan, and an assortment of other lovely colors for a real homey feel.
I cut the Star Quilt out of Aqua, very light peach, peach and the Cozy Quilt paper then pieced it the way I liked it. In the print paper there is a tan as well that I used for my card base. I cut a square larger than the quilt to mount the quilt to then cut 4 borders and glued them on, over hanging on both ends of each side (necessary for mitering). Take a ruler and a craft knife to cut through both layers of border then cut away the pieces you don't need, you should be left with a nice mitered frame look.
For the easel to stay open I pop up a layer on the inside to use as a stop.
Thanks for visiting today!
