Christmas Quilt

Posted by Picasa
Quilt Up Some Fun with a Square Punch
First start with a 1- 1/4" square punch # 104400 and  a few sheets of the 
CHRISTMAS COCOA SPECIALTY designer series paper # 116770 (Holiday Mini Catalog)
Punch a total of 6 squares  of various patterns. I then cut each of those six squares on a diagonal making 12 triangles.
Each of those triangles were mounted , side by side and mixing the patterns on a Soft Suede layer measuring 2- 3/4" by 4".
That panel was then mounted on a Real Red layer measuring 3- 1/4" by 4-1/2".
The next layer is Basic black measuring 3-1/2" by 4-3/4".
the last layer is Basic Gray measuring 3- 3/4" by 5".
TIP : Notice there is a 1/4" progression on each of the last 3 layers

Look  what a Great Embellishment you can Make with the JUMBO SNOWFLAKE PUNCH # 116628 and a Button from the DESIGNER BUTTONS  PLAYGROUND pack # 116313

Combine with ribbon and cording for a unique holiday medallion

1/2" Polka Dot Soft Suede ribbon# 115612
Black Gingham ribbon # 104832
1/4" Real Red grosgrain ribbon # 109034
Silver elastic cord # 109866

The sentiment is from the Hostess set HOLIDAY BEST # 115364
It was stamped using versamark ink # 102283 and embossing with Silver Embossing Powder #109131 first on Shimmery White Metallic paper #101910 and then again using black embossing powder # 109135 on Soft Suede cardstock#115318. The Merry Christmas was cut from the soft suede piece and mounted directly onto the silver embossed Merry Christmas.
Mount your embossed sentiment onto a punched Small Oval # 107304 piece of REAL RED #102482.
Mount that to a punched Scalloped Oval # 114889 piece of Basic Black#102851.

LOOK CLOSELY.........the edge of the black scallop is silver!
It's Silver Metallic ENCORE ink # 101039  just sponged on the edges creating the illusion of another layer.
TIP: Use your heat gun to help dry metallic ink
