Teeny Tiny Wishes Quilt Technique Card

I saw this card on Pinterest and I thought it would be fun to try my hand at the faux quilting!!!  The original card was made by Carol at "My Little Inspirations."  I'm sorry that the card image takes you to her blog and not directly to the post.  So I will have to tell you how I made the card. You could scroll through her posts until you find the card but I'm not sure if she included instructions.  I didn't search very long there.

So to make this card I used the 1" square punch. I punched out 4 of each colors.  My decorative paper came from the new "All Abloom" paper pack. 

Once I got the pieces punched out I cut them in half from point to point.  Then I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and added tape to it so I could assemble the pieces on it.  I just started setting the pieces in place and when I was done I had a pretty star quilted pattern piece.  Then I took a piece of the Lost Lagoon decorative paper and punched a flower out.  I set that flower in place using Dimensionals.  Then I added a 1/2" circle to the center.  I used a piece of scrap from the decorative paper that I used for the squares.  I taped that in place in the center of the flower.

Then I used the Modern Label punch and punched a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock.  I stamped the "happy birthday" using the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  This piece was set in place using Dimensionals.

The background was embossed using the "Modern Mosaic" folder.  It had that "quilted" look to it.

And that is all there is to this card.  I glued the quilted piece on the Modern Mosaic piece and I glued that piece on to a folded half sheet of Lost Lagoon card stock.  Yup, I did say I glued it.  I find that the tape doesn't stick as well to the textured paper so I've been gluing mine and I've had no problems.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
