Peaceful Quilted Card


I'm in need of a couple of Sympathy Cards here recently.  I wanted something simple and fallish, warm and comforting.  How about a card with a warm cozy quilt?  


Well, insert the Six Sided Sampler set, and all is good!  

For this card, I stamped 5-6 of the hexagon images in different colors - I took the colors that are used in Sweater Weather DSP.  That's a pretty easy way to figure out a color combo if you are stuck wondering what colors to use.  Just grab the colors that are in some of your fave DSP's.

Once I had them stamped, I punched them out and laid them on a Soft Sky panel, arranging them the way that I wanted.  Then, glued them down.  I trimmed off what was hanging over the edge.  Which got me thinking; if I'd stamped even more of the images, and filled a full sheet of cardstock, I could have simply cut the full sheet into 4 and had enough for 4 cards!  Would have been very easy.   


I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out.  Was fun to ink up this set again with a variety of colors.  I think this set is accommodating to a wide variety of color schemes.  What do you think?  Does it remind you of Grandma's quilt?

This is a lovely card! Yep, looks like grandmas quilt! Great idea about cutting in four to make four cards at once! Thanks for sharing. I found your card on Pinterest! :)
