The Cosmo Cricket blog posted a challenge last week to use stitching on a project. This one was easy for me since I stitch on most projects. I had been holding on to this cute sheet of squares called “Ivy" from the Clementine collection because I knew immediately when I saw it that I would want to quilt the squares. The challenge gave me the perfect excuse.
I cut a 5“ x5“ piece from the patterned paper and lightly tacked it onto a card base. I try to use as little adhesive as possible so I don’t gum up the needle. Then I stitched down and across each row and column to quilt the squares. It was super quick to do.
To finish the card, I added a journaling spot from Cosmo Cricket’s Upcycle line and a chipboard butterfly from the Togetherness line. For the sentiment, I used a sticker and attached it to a toothpick to make a little flag.
Fun, quick, easy. And I won the challenge to boot. It was random draw! LOL. And now I am the proud owner of all 4 chipboards from Cosmo Crickets CHA release. I love them! Cosmo Cricket has a new challenge this week, which coincidentally is to use chipbard on a project. Hmmm. You can find the details here. The challenge ends Sunday.
