As you can see we are using Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.  I decided to use the Christmas Quilt stamp set and coordinating framelit for my card.

Christmas Quilt for Color Fusers

I have a couple quilts made by my grandmother.  She did not make designs, but used scraps and fit them together however they would fit.  She was more after the use of the quilt than the art of it.  Later, my mother took a quilt class.  She made one for me. It was beautiful and had a definite design.  I cherish these quilts.  So this card today is in memory of Mama Blackwell and Mama.

The card base is Early Espresso measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

The Very Vanilla layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  There is another layer of vanilla measuring 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 used for the base of the quilt.

Using the Big Shot, cut 4 of the quilt squares with the plain square around the outside from Early Espresso.  Find the middle of the vanilla layer.  Place the four squares diagonal from the center.  Make sure that you lay the layer down square on your grid paper and use the grid paper to help to line up the diagonal squares.  Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

Cut the quilt square one each from Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and Old Olive.  Place these colors randomly on the quilt trying to space out the colors. Glue down.  When complete, turn over the vanilla layer and trim off all excess paper.

Run this piece through Big Shot using the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This folder is a must have and really adds interest to the paper.

Quilt close up

The sentiment is from the Christmas Quilt stamp set.  It is stamped in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  Use the Layering Ovals to cut it out.  Place on dimensionals.

The needle is part of the framelit set.  Cut it out in Silver Foil.  Thread with Pool Party Solid Baker's Twine.  Roll up glue dots under the thread to adhere to the card.

Christmas Quilt Color Fusers inside

The sentiment used on the inside of the card is from the stamp set Crafting Forever. Place some left over pieces over the page.
