For the first time in ages & certainly since starting this new blog I am finally entering a challenge, & its a return to one of my favourite challenge blogs - CD Sunday
This week the challenge is called "Quilted Fun". To me this said babies or cute animals & bed. I chose to use The Docrafts Digital Designer & their CD called "New Arrival" - one of the Forever Friends sets.
The test was how to create a quilt! well, this is what I did -
I took a 7" x 5" card, landscape & drew around a tea plate to give the open edge a curve to create a rocker card. In order to rock my quilt covered Teddy to sleep. After I had chosen the background papers from the CD I cut them into 1" squares, outlined them with faux stitching & covered the lower section of the card. I printed out the teddy twice & used his feet & his Teddy doll for some decoupage. After staring at the card for a while (nothing was stuck down at this stage) I felt it needed some lift, so I created a pillow from a matching paper, added some lace around the edges & fixed it to the card with some extra sticky pads in the centre giving it a padded look. I then stuck 2 pink & 2 blue squares wrong sides together, folded one corner back & placed them over the original squares & the teddy's feet to make it look like he was pushing the covers back. Finally I added lace to the curved edge, a plastic congratulations & some pink & blue buttons.
Here is the card stood up & it does rock slightly.
