quilt card

Got this idea from Kristi on The Best Things In Life are Piink on her youtube video about using 6x6 paper pads in card making.  I didn't have the quilt die so I found a quilt image just like that on google, traced it into my Silhouette software and after a bit of "tweaking" I came up with a cut file so that the corners cut as squares and the triangles cover both sections and the center area cuts as one pieces.  Using a die you have a ton of tiny pieces and have to back the card with adhesive strips (it show what I mean in her video).  My way I only have 4 triangles, 4 squares, one center pieces and one black overlay.  Anyway.  I then make a label piece from a Silhouette file, printed the happy birthday on the white part, added it to the card with brads and added a silk flower to the center.  I really like this card.
