Quilted Die Cuts

One more card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge, based on this week's sketch at CPS. The verse is from the Christian Sympathy set (Clear Dollar Stamps) and I paired it with this "quilted" piece I had made a couple weekends ago at a library class, but it had yet to find a home. I know the CPS sketch features circles, but I really like the interest that the shape provides here.

Below you'll find the 2 cards that I made using the same quilted technique - punch squares from patterned paper and adhere to standard copy paper, then die cut. These panels were also dry embossed (with the CB paisley folder), and I accented it with some ink on the left card. Fun and easy! The sentiments are from Unity (praying for you) and a*muse (relax...)

This is sooo interesting! I've done the quilt look with the top note die before, but I never thought to cut in half and put them at opposite ends of the card like that! HOW COOOL! :) Love your verse, and the colors of your top card--sooo PRETTY! And your other cards are so nice too--different color scheme, but LOVE the patchwork on those. Thanks so much for entering our challenge at SSCC! =)
