Since my mom loves to quilt, I decided to make her some notecards with a quilting theme. For the majority of the cards, I double stamped the image, once on a plainer paper and once on patterned paper. I "fancy cut" the quilt out of the patterned paper and layered it on top of the trunk image that I stamped and cut out. For this first one, I used marbles and reinkers to make my own background. This is a fun technique and turns out differently every time.
On this one, I used a Cuttlebug folder for my base and then used my blending tool and Distress inks to bring out the design of the background. I also pop dotted the trunk for a more 3-D look. (You can always click on any image if you want to see a larger version.)
Here I used my paper crimper and Distress inks on a thin sheet of cream colored paper. I also added eyelets and varied the colors of my trunk and quilt.
For this one, I pop dotted the trunk from the Cuttlebugged solid paper and used the same patterned paper for the background as I did for the quilt. I used a walnut ink spritzer to make the paper for the trunk.
There was a lot of cutting for this project, but it was fun to do. I made quite a few other variations as well, but I think you get the idea.
