Quilted Numbers


It's a cold and blustery Sunday here - a perfect day for crafty time!  :)  I finally sat down to work on my entry for this week's Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World.  This is another one of those cards that's been percolating in my brain for a while.  Sometimes I'm hesitant to sit down and try and make them because I'm afraid they won't turn out like what's in my head.  Thankfully I'm thrilled with how this one came out!  I die cut numbers from the white panel and then from coloured paper and then put them all together.  Then I took my embossing stylus and made little indents around each number to mimic the quilted look.  Now, I'm not sure if you're supposed to enter a card in more than one Moxie Fab challenge but I'm going to give it a try as this card qualifies for two other challenges that are running at the moment for Cool Tools Week:  the Embossing and Debossing Challenge and the Die Cutting Challenge.


Now I'm off to cook some good hearty comfort food for this chilly night and then snuggle up on the sofa with the boys.  Have a wonderful evening!

Oh,how much I love this! I think this is the idea that was living in my head that I couldn't get out onto paper...at least not in any way that didn't end up in the recycling! Love the extra touch of the debossing around the numbers :)

Marion said...

I absolutely love this card. You totally rocked this one. I really like the treatment around each number. Did you poke a needle around each letter to get it to look like that?
