I have always wanted to sew with a sewing machine and make a quilt, so with our challenge this week I made a mini quilt for my card and as I don’t have a sewing machine, it’s faux stitching for me!I punched out 16 squares and I used two matching double sided papers. I know I keep using my favorite colours green and pink but they just speak to me! I then taught my daughter how to paper pierce using a Stampin Up product, she got about half of the squares done for me and really enjoyed it until her favorite show came on TV and she dumped me like a bag of potatoes! I then used a very fine marker to make the stiches. I recently cut a few die cuts in white from my girlfriends new dies and she did the same with mine and I used these on my card, it was great to have these pre cut to fiddle with and made the perfect addition to my card! I used my Copics to colour this cute little bird sitting in a tree called MORNING GLORY and matched these colours to my designer papers. I added glitter glue to my ribbon bow and I am really pleased with how that makes the ribbon look so much prettier, I am so glad I took up card making!!!
