I was inspired to join in on Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge this week. I was however, in a weird spot, because it is mostly a paper challenge, and I have no decorative papers from PTI. I DID have some scraps of red cardstock from PTI left over from my sample pack, but that's all. I hope it's enough! Happily I DO have a cover plate die that would work.
The challenge was to make paper look like a quilt, using a cover plate or embossing plate on top of a quilted paper pattern.
I made this--
I think it looks SO MUCH like a real quilt! The cover plate die used as an embossing plate really makes the paper look like a top stitched quilt, I think. Clever! I liked these red pearls added, too, because they remind me of old fashioned quilting pins stuck into the fabric.
I made this, too--(so I can enter TWICE!)
Same idea, different treatment with the red strip. And, of course, now many quilting pins have the pearl tops on them (my Grammy was a quilter).
Here they are together--
Thanks so much for stopping by!
PS--I was only allowed to enter once, for some reason. I am a bummed pup...
