Sisterhood of Crafters

Hello crafty friends.  Today is the day where the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog starts a new challenge for the month.  Today’s challenge is to use dies.  Here is my card – my first Christmas card of the season.

I love this quilt die, but I have to admit it is a bit of a bear to work with.  I am only using part of the die – there are many smaller pieces surrounding the main star pattern, as well as a outline where you place all the pieces.  Like a jigsaw puzzle…which I was never really fond of!

The beautiful red paper is an old pattern called Lush from My Minds Eye.  The patterned paper is a velvet flock and is absolutely gorgeous.  I’ve hoarded my stash for years and make a couple of Christmas cards with it each year.  I only have a few sheets left of this and it will be hard when it is all used up!

This card will go to my older sister, who makes beautiful quilts.  This is about as close as I will get to making one!!

Hop on over to the Sisterhood of Crafters Blog and take a look at what the other designers have made and enter your own creation.  All the details can be found HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!

    This card will be wonderful for your sister, Nancy! I love quilts and have no problem reaping the rewards of their labor because I would never be able to make one. LOL They are worth every penny! Your card is worth the labor as well. Love the colors for a pretty holiday card!
