JustRite photo inspiration
Happy Sunday all!
It's still quite a bit warm here and should remain for, well probably 'til October ;)
I like warm weather, so I am quite ok with that.
Even though it is warm, I had to make a Christmas quilt like card for the JustRite inspiration photo challenge #30. It has some of my favourite colours in it and I got to use my favourite right now wintery paper from MemoryBox that I purchased at Ellen Hutson's. I will be submitting this card too for the flower parade Ellen is having because I think these octagon die cut birdie topped "flowers" are just sweet and whimsical.
If you look closely at the patterned paper, you can see that all of the colours in the inspiration photo are represented in the card. Don't you just love that when it happens!
So, for the card I cut out one of the MemoryBox Mistletoe papers for the card front and then cut out the tiny bird print paper into a couple of squares. The red print paper is from DCWV Once Upon a Time that I have in my collection. It compliments the MemoryBox paper well (imho). I lined these up on a narrow strip of another paper from the MB Mistletoe collection and then just stitched across with a tiny zigzag.
To the top of this, I added a narrow silk aqua ribbon and tied a simple bow with it.
The JustRite sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink (did you see that JR now sells these inks!)and I edged the deckled cut sides with a Copic marker.
The flower die is PTI and I used the SU Cherry Cobbler cs to make these and topped them with more of the MB birdie paper that I cut out with the smallest Nestability octagon die.
That's it for my simple wintry birdie quilt!
Thanks for taking a peek, have a great Sunday!
