Dresden China Inlaid Quilt Block Hello

This is the second card I made with the Jillian Vance Dresden China Quilt Block.  The inlaid design is my favorite.

For this card I only used two patterned papers.  Be Creative Tape was added to the back of each. A rectangle of Gina K. Designs Layering Weight Cardstock was cut using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX. Be Creative Tape was then added to the back and the quilt block was again, ensuring it was centered in the rectangle towards the top.

Using the Be Creative Tape allows all the die cuts to become stickers and are then easy to assemble in the desired patterned. The stitched rectangle was placed on the front of a top folding A2 Cardbase, made from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock, to ensure placed of the ivory quilt frame. The patterned paper quilt pieces were then adhered in the appropriate pattern.

To create the inlaid look Darice Stick Back Foam was added to the back of the rectangle with the opening for the quilt block and carefully adhered in place.

The sentiment was cut from one of the patterned papers using the My Favorite Things Happy Hellos Die and an additional three time from ivory cardstock.  All were stacked and adhered together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  After placing the sentiment at the bottom of the card it just felt like it needed a little some extra, so a thin strip of the  other patterned paper was added just above, and an even thinner strip was added using the back of that double sided paper.  Love the way it turned out.
