Here is the March card sketch from Stick it Down. The different patterned papers and shape of the elements reminded me of a quilt.
Awhile ago I was inspired by several crafters who used quilt patterns on their cards. Using Google Images as a reference and the grid on the Silhouette Design Studio virtual mat as a guide, I created a template for a log cabin quilt. That’s one of the easiest as far as I can tell. It’s just squares and rectangles! I decided to use my template to make cards for this challenge.
I placed eight 6×6 patterned papers from the same paper pad (Special Delivery by Pebbles) onto my mat and cut them out. The little green 9-square you see above the mat was cut for the very centers of my log cabins. I cut out the word “hello” in black, and also cut out eight 5.5″ black squares on which to build my log cabins.
Once all my squares and rectangles were cut out, I carefully transferred the pieces onto my eight black squares for a dry fit. I worked with the squares individually, first inking the edges of each piece then adhering them onto the black squares.
It looks like my camera focused on the Hello die cut and the patterned papers are a little out of focus, but here are two of the cards.I added tiny black star brads to the lower right hand corners of each card.We’d love to see what you do with this month’s sketch! You can link your version here!
