hmm? modern quilt portrayed through paper-crafting? How do I interpret this theme? or use the image prompt?
I decided to make a mini kit out of a few scraps plus some full sheets that hadn't cut into yet from my February 2019 CKC blog kit to make at least 2 birthday cards for March. Since the deadline for quilt challenge at Inspired By #61 (Laurel Seabrook Designs) ends later tonight, I'm going to make this a quick posting in order to get the one made about an hour ago shown. The 2nd card is started with base and background, so fingers crossed I can get it linked up too!
Modern Quilt birthday card #1=
From CKC Feb 2019 kit: the creamy yellow base cardstock, the yellow-green mottled cardstock, and the 6 pattern papers used for the triangles, white glitter alphas, plus the lt. blue butterfly and white butterfly stick-ons that were colored to match the blue and bright pink flowers in the border sticker
*And a shout-out to 100 Pattern Papers Challenge, a closed group on Facebook; due to their encouragement to use old stockpiles of inventory, the butterflies, alphas, CS, and papers were part of my 2019 starter kit that I made in January!
Add-ons from Current Catalog: the 2 different border stickers
Above pic: 1 sheet of cream cardstock made 2 card bases (4.25" x 5.5") and then 4.5" squares were cut from 6 patterned papers; each square then created 2-2.25" squares and 6 or 1 of each were cut in half in order to make the quilted focus=
Faux stitching details were added around the 2 center triangles and then the perimeter for another quilt element. Even though 5 of the papers have tones in soft to mid level blues and greens, I think the pop of color in the 1 paper and the embellishments keeps it fresh and contemporary.
