I hope that you have checked out the last two posts, they are featuring the [Christmas Quilt & Quilt Builder Framelits]. For my projects today, they are paper quilts. For the first one I dug into my designer series paper for a piece with a wood texture, the [Wood Textures] is perfect. I chose a white washed piece to give the background a bit of interest without distracting from the focal point - the quilt.
This next one I used an IN-LAID EMBOSSING technique. It's really simple to do.
You can use any embossing folder, I of course used the [Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder]. Die cut your pieces and glue them in place, then put it in the embossing folder and run it through the [Big Shot] or similar die cutting machine. If you put it face up on the side with the Stampin' Up! logo you will get an embossed look (embossing will popped up impression). If you want it De-bossed (inward impression) you put your piece face down. It's that easy! My card is De-bossed.
A simple 3x3" card is the perfect fit for this die cut. I used the same [Wood Textures] Designer Series Paper that I used on the first card.
Next is a glittery, shiny card. I De-bossed the background. There are some quilt themed add-on die cuts. My favourite is the thread spool (I used the Wood Textures DSP again) and sewing needle are what I chose to use. To make it more realistic, I wrapped a bit of [Metallic Silver thread]. I hope you like my projects for today, I have more to share tomorrow.
