Birthday Quilt Card

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a good week. Rich caught a bad cold/virus last weekend and shared it with Emilia and I so we are sick now. I hate being sick especially in the summer. Nothing is worse then being stuffed up in June. Rich is doing better now so hopefully it won't last to long for us either and we will be back to normal soon too. The hot weather we were enjoying has gone for now and we are back in the 70's not such a bad thing when you are sick though.
Today I wanted to share a card that I made for a challenge hosted by my Etsygreetings team. We were suppose to make something using the digi paper pack from this seller. This is what I came up with.

As most of you probably know besides stamping I also love quilting. I still have not finished the first quilt I started over 10 years ago because I am quilting it by hand but I love combining quilting and papercrafting because it does not take as long to do. I started by punching 3/4 inch squares of the pattern paper and solid cardstock than I used this tutorial for how to make the block then pieced it together on white cardstock. After that I machine quilted it. Next I stamped the sentiment from the PTI Quilters Samplers set then scanned it and resized it. After that I cut it out with a Spellbinders ribbon slider die and threaded some spring moss twill riboon through it. I embossed the blue background piece using a Tim Holtz Damask Embossing Folder. Some more machine stitching and a Spring Moss Twill bow and spring rain button finish it off.
That's it for now I hope to be back with more to share soon. Until then I hope you have a great weekend and as always thanks for stopping by.

This is so pretty, Terri! Love the papers you chose for your quilt--great design! I also thought it was a neat idea to use that sentiment and then reduce it to fit. Hope you are feeling much better by now!

This is lovely, how great that you stitched on the paper too. And don't worry about that quilt, my first one took me ten years as well, because I also hand quilted it and hand pieced it. I have bought fabric since, but haven't cut a new one yet.
