Friends Are Like Quilts

Hello!  Time for another Great Impressions card for you.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the D266 Give Comfort sentiment, especially since we're moving into Autumn.

I took my PTI hexagon die plate and first cut it out in cream cardstock before adhering it to Scor-Tape.  This is so much easier than individually gluing on the hexagons.  Next I die cut a bunch of coordinating My Mind's Eye and Miss Caroline papers then randomly placed them.  Here's a tip:  as long you don't press hard on the Scor-Tape, you can gently remove the designer paper and reposition it if necessary.  I did that in a couple of spots when I changed my mind about placement.

Now I've included a pic of the resulting "quilt" without embossing.  This is when I should have stamped the sentiment but I was so eager to emboss I completely forgot--LOL.  It turned out fine using the MISTI to stamp the sentiment a couple of times.  I love how this turned out.  The texture is amazing.  If only it were this easy to make a quilt in a real life!

See you next week with another GI designToni 

Don't forget about the GI monthly challenge!
You don't have to use GI stamps but it'd be totally awesome if you did!
