"Cuddlebug Quilt"

Sunday, May 29,2011

I wish to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our past and present member of our armed services. With out thier sacrafice we would probably not have the freedoms that we enjoy today. I can only say "Thank You For Your Service" to all those that have served.

Todays card is what I call a "Cuddlebug Quilt". The background is made up of six patterned paper squares that measure 1 7/8" X 1 11/16" squares of different paper. They where run through the Cuddlebug in an embossing folder to give the texture.

Here is the card;

"Cuddlebug Quilt"

After you emboss the squares, glue them to a 4"X5.25" piece of cardstock. This will then be adhered to the base card. The image used on this card is from the "Paper Parachute". It was colored with Copic markers. After coloring the image I used a Spica pen in Green to give some sparkle to the stems and leaves.

The image mat was corner punched with a Martha Stewart corner punc, as was the secondary image mat. The half pearl where origanially cream, but I colored them with a Copic marker to match the card.

The image mat assembly was popped up withPopDots. Also the center of the flower was popped up.

Hint: Use glue to adhere the squares to the mat' this give you more tack time to position the squares.
Use an embossing folder that will give you a high definition pattern so that it shows up.

That's all for today. Enjoy your weekend and your family.

Please leave a comment, they arer always appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!!
