Time to change up that straight faux stitching with a little zig-zag! Sorry the colors are looking a little off in this photo -- this card is a perfect plum base and has the swirl from Carte Postale stamped down the left side in perfect plum classic ink. For the quilted piece, I cut squares of four different patterns of designer paper from the Enchante collection and adhered them to a strip of pale plum cardstock. Then I faux zig-zag stitched the strips together by piercing every other hole in the Stampin’ Up paper piercing template and then connecting the holes with perfect plum Stampin’ Write Marker. This strip was adhered about ¾” from the left side of the card.
The focal image is the butterfly from A Touch of Nature stamped in Timber Brown StazOn on vanilla cardstock. I wanted a softer look, so I used a blender pen with classic ink pads to color the butterfly with plum & celery. The Fancy Flexible Phrases sentiment was also stamped in Timber Brown StazOn. The corners of this piece were clipped with the Ticket Corner Punch and matted with celery cardstock. The edges of both pieces were sponged with cocoa ink. The piece was mounted with dimensionals to the card.
A tab was created with the small oval punch (other half is wrapped around to the inside of the card), the edges sponged and adhered to the lower right side with a gold brad.
