Dresden China Sew Beautiful to Me

This is the third card that I made with the Jillian Vance Dresden China Die.  This time I decided to give dimension to the quilt block by adding multiple layers of the frame, which made the pieces of the quilt recessed.

This time I decided to make a 4.5″ x 4.5″ card.  The cardbase was made from the patterned paper used for the quilt block.  The die was cut from a scrap of that cardstock that had been backed with Be Creative Tape, and another three time with plain ivory cardstock.  To adhered all the quilt frames together the ivory pieces were sprayed with Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive and then layered together.

A square of Gina K. Designs Layering Weight Ivory Cardstock was cut using the largest Avery Elle Double Pierced Square die.  The sentiment from Jillian Vance’s Sew Special was stamped in the lower left using Altenew Pink Diamond Ink.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller and adhered to the back.  The quilt frames were then adhered to the center of the card and the individual pieces of the quilt were adhered by peeling off the protective backing on the Be Creative Tape and putting them in place.  The rectangle was then adhered to the cardbase using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Final embellishments were to add a thin silk ribbon bow at the top of the card and adding a white pearl in the center of the quilt and the card was done.
