My card is inspired by my bedspread, which is not really very colorful, I must say. It's pistachio green and gray but it does have some pretty designs on it so, I grabbed that soft pretty green and added some color of my own. Hope you like this card.
I just punched a few 1 1/2" squares and arranged them to make this pattern then, I grabbed an old embossing folder from Cuttlebug and, after I glued the squares I ran the whole panel on my Big Shot to create the swirls.
The Sentiment, spool and needle, are from a very old stamp set that I have no clue where it came from. Back when I started stamping I had the habit of throwing away the packaging of my sets and dies without saving that information but, in my defense, I never thought I was going to need it someday, a blog was the last thing on my mind.
I just stamped this spool and the needle onto some scraps of Strathmore 90lb. water color paper because I was going to fussy cut them. Yes, I even fussy cut this needle. I wrapped some real embroidery thread on the spool and cut a small piece to "thread" it through the needle. Well, I didn't really actually thread it, I just made a small slit on the "eye" with an exacto knife and place the thread in it and added a little drop of glue to keep it in place and a couple more for that thread to stay on the panel.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
The sentiment, quilt blocks and needle image are also from this set.
I hope you guys give this challenge a try, there is a lot of possibilities with it, take the colors or the design of your bedding, pillows, etc. make a card and share it with us in the gallery.
Don't forget to stop by my teammates blogs to see their awesome cards and get more inspiration and leave them some crafty love.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
