A couple of Patchwork Quilt cards

A friend of mine asked me to make a patchwork Quilt sympathy card for her recently.

Here's what I came up with....


I stamped my sentiment (from Reverse Confetti's Lots to Say) and then impressed it
with my PTI Woodgrain impression plate.
I diecut my scalloped square using PTI's LL:Squares 2.25" dies.
I used some Simple Stories Sweater Weather patterned paper and diecut them
using the straight edge Stitched Border 2 die from Pretty Pink Posh.
I adhered them to my card and added a vellum Lovely Layers die-cut & 
a decorative brad to finish it off.

I had some scraps left over, so I decided to make a second card.


This time, I used PTI's KIS: Birthday stamp set for my sentiment.

Thanks for looking!
