Quilted Christmas Wishes…

Have you ever made an “Inchie” card?  I used to love to make them and today’s card brings that back with a “quilty” twist…

A warm snuggly quilt for the holidays sounds nice…so here’s a miniature version and the Stuff ‘N Digits

Stuff

  • Paper:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Real Read cardstock, plus Home for Christmas DSP
  • Ink:  Memento Black
  • Stamps: Festive Fireplace
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Punch (retired 🙁 ), Home for Christmas Designer Buttons, 1″ square punch, embossing folder for quilting (the one I used is retired)

Digits

  • The Real Red base card is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • The Very Vanilla layer is 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ attached to card front with adhesive
  • The Basic Black layer is 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • Punch 9 squares with 1″ punch.  Start by placing a square in each corner of the Basic Black square with Tomboy Glue, then the centers between corner pieces and last the center.  Run this glued layer through Big Shot with an embossing folder that has a small design to “quilt”.
  • Add the Basic Black Square to Very Vanilla square with dimensionals or fun foam.
  • Punch and stamp your sentiment and attach with dimensionals
  • Add buttons to bottom with new Fine Tip Glue Pen

Hope you enjoyed this technique and that you will stop back by tomorrow…it’s my birthday!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

When I hear that…I walk out of the kitchen.  If they don’t know, I’m not fixing it!

Hope your fingers are inky…and you are HaPpY!

  1. Hi Billie, I have never heard of an inchie card before or seen one. I love it. And you just used the Home For Christmas DSP. I’ve got to make this. I’m learning a lot from you. Thanks for sharing. OH and HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I hope it’s AWESOME.

    • MaryAnn…if you search Pintrest, you’ll find all kinds I’d ideas for “in hie” cards. Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments!…B

  2. Billie I realize the punch for the sentiment is retired but what is the name of it? Always ebay right. Thanks for the help. Love making this type of card. Great way to clean out the bits and pieces pile!

    • OK Rosemarie…I went back in my catalogs to find this punch and had to go as far back as far as 2010. It’s call Designer Label Large and it sold for $15.95. Hope that helps…B
