Faux Quilting

Faux Quilting

Today’s card goes for a faux quilting effect, with the help of washi tape and a marker.

I’m not a big fan of actually sewing on pages. It looks lovely, but too often I’ve had the stitches set too tight, and end up with perforated paper. I much prefer the ease of using a fine tip marker to achieve a visually similar look.

I started this with a piece of scrap paper cut to the size of the Big Shot die I used, and then laid strips of washi across the paper. Once the paper was filled, I put it through my Big Shot, and poof! Four adorable flowers.

I used a fine tipped india ink marker to create the faux stitching, added some buttons and baker’s twine, and a stamped sentiment, and it was done.

Pretty quick and fun card. I could do this one repeatedly.

Don’t forget, if you want to get a card in the mail from me, make sure you’re on my email list! I’ll be sending another reminder email soon, to ask for addresses.
