CIJ - Believe in Santa Quilt Card

Hi, Friends......

I am back to share another Christmas quilt card I made with a large image from patterned paper. I am still undecided whether or not this inlaid die-cut technique is a good way to use these oversized pieces.....or if the quilt block framework draws away from the image too much. I kept to icy aquas with dashes of red from Santa and the sentiment on this card.

Supplies used include:
Gina Marie Designs - Stitched Quilt #3 Block Die - Flower Burst
Quietfire Designs - We Believe in Santa! (retired)
Versafine ink in Crimson Red
Inspired by Stamping - Fancy Labels 3 Dies (retired)
DCWV Patterned Paper and Solid Cardstock
Dollar Store Foam Snowflakes (still trying to use these crazy things up....some of them have 7 points!!)

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope your July is going well. Our weather has finally warmed up and my garden is exploding with growth. Yay! Hope our season is long enough for tomatoes and squashes to ripen!

  15. So pretty. I do wish I could see just a bit more of Santa, but I think the use of a die-cut to see the picture behind is a great idea! So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our "Christmas in July" challenge at Die Cut Divas.
