Quilted Roses

Good morning!
Today I have a faux quilt card to share with you. I say faux quilt because, despite all my good intentions, my sewing machine refused to cooperate so...I have lots of little stitch marks...and no stitches. I guess that makes it just paper pierced huh? {*smile*}

So...the card base is a 5-1/4 x 10-1/2 inch piece of Ridinghood Red. The quilted layer starts with a 5 inch square of Old Olive. I cut two 2-1/4 inch squares of Bella Rose DSP and two 2 inch squares then cut each in half diagonally for all the triangles. The pieces were all adhered to the Old Olive square and then "stitched" with the temper mental sewing machine.
The rose and leaves were stamped next with Ridinghood Red and Old Olive (first and second generation inking) on Neenah Solar White and punched with a 1-1/2 inch circle punch. I also cut out a Lacey Circle of white (Spellbinders) and punched a large scallop circle of DSP. These were all layered together with dimensionals and mounted to the center of the card.
The sentiment is stamped with Ridinghood Red on white and punched with the Word Window punch then layered on a Designer Label punched piece of green DSP.
