Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Quilt Card!

How about a "Double Wedding Ring Quilt" card for today? And I even have a tutorial on to complete one for yourself!

Gorgeous if I do say so myself! And all of the rings are cut out with punches. How easy is that? Follow me......

Step 1:

Using the "1 1/4" Circle Punch and Pink Pirouette Cardstock, cut and save center cardstock piece for another project (remember, we don't throw anything away!).

Step 2:

Use the cardstock piece with the 'hole' in it and center the hole in the middle of the "1 3/8" Circle Punch". Repeat steps 1 & 2 five more times. Now switch over the "Pear Pizzazz Cardstock" and repeat six times.

Step 3:

Cut a piece of "Very Vanilla Cardstock" measuring 3 3/4" x 4 3/4" and start gluing the rings by overlapping them by about 3/8" and glue in place with a "Glue Pen". Start with "Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette and then Pear Pizzazz". 

Step 4:

Alternate the colors in the next row and over lap both the sides and the tops.

Step 5:

Continue to build your rows until you have 4 rows and the photo above shows you what your cardstock panel should look like.

Step 6:

Using your "Big Shot Machine" and the "Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder", run the whole cardstock panel through the machine. The rings will get "pressed" into the Very Vanilla layer and resemble a quilting pattern.

Step 7:

Glue your "Very Vanilla Cardstock" layer over a "Pink Pirouette Cardstock" layer measuring 4" x 4 7/8". Glue to the "Early Espresso Cardstock" background layer that was cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored in the center.

The sentiment is from "Bring On The Cake" inked in "Early Espresso Ink". The bow is "Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon" and I tucked a "Hat Pin" to complete.
