Hello and welcome to the My Favorite Things October Creative Construction with Blueprints. ;)
There are few things more inviting during the hectic holiday season than cozying up under a well-worn quilt with a warm cup and inviting book. Join us this month as we recreate that comfortable feeling in paper form with the homespun elements included in Blueprints 20.
For my card I decided to go with non-traditional holiday colours and create a card that shares that homespun holiday feeling but that can be given at any time of the year.
I used the quilted die from the Blueprints 20 collection, but rather than using all of the designs that come in the die, I diecut it multiple times and only used the solid stitched square and the stitched heart square.
I cut it out of white cardstock as well as the aqua and grey papers from the 6x6 Calm & Cozy Chevron paper pad and then inlaid them back into the grid. I used the outside pieces of the heart patterned papers and the white hearts inside and I used the solid white stitched square and added the chevron hearts on top with foam adhesive.
I used the 'smile' sentiment from the Bionic Bots stamp set and stamped it in the middle of one of the white hearts with black ink. I layered the quilted rectangle onto a piece of Summer Splash cardstock and adhered it to the stitched rectangle diecut form white cardstock.
I completed the card by layering the finished panel onto a Grout Gray card base with the scalloped rectangle cut from vellum sandwiched in between. I also added some clear sequins on the stitched panel for a bit of added detail and dimension.
