Winter Blessings Quilt (Sneak Peek)

Hello there friends,  Julie here to share a card that I created using Peace of God (for the sentiment) along with a sneak peek of Winter Blessings (to be released on 10/16/15).

I just love the new set, Winter Blessings and decided to use this set to create my own "Designer"  Paper :-)

To create this card:

Side view to show a sneak peak of the new
Winter Blessings Stamp Set 
Sponge several different purple inks onto a piece of white cardstock, dry the ink thoroughly (you can use a Heat Tool for this step), ink the new Winter Blessing stamp with an Embossing Ink and stamp over the sponged panel, apply White Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.

To create the “quilt”, use a 1 ¼” Square Punch to punch out the squares from the newly created background panel (along with white cardstock), cut the squares in half diagonally by hand and mount onto a piece of cardstock in the quilt pattern.

Use a sewing machine with white thread to stitch along the “seams” and finish the edges of the quilt with ribbon strips (wrapped and secured behind the quilt panel).

Add a strip of remaining “homemade” background paper to an embossed piece of white cardstock (I used a snowflake embossing folder) and mount the focal “quilt” panel with dimensional foam.

To finish off the card, add the stamped Peace of God sentiment along with a few roses and a ribbon bow (these were from my stash).
