Shaped Card: Quilted Beach Ball

Today, I have a quick card to share with you:  a bright happy beach ball card.  On the inside, I used the sentiment: It's your birthday!  Have a ball!


To make this card, I drew a ball shape on cardstock (tracing a small plate) and cut it out.  Next, I gathered some coordinating paper scraps from Echo Park and cut them into pie-shaped wedgess, inking the edges. I laid them on the card front in a beach ball design, lightly tacked them down, then used a zig zag stitch between each panel for a quilted look.

At top, I added a small cardstock circle and large stitched brad from Crate Paper.  On the bottom right, I stitched on a label sticker from October Afternoon with brads, chipboard and letter stickers.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a warm and sunny weekend wherever you are.
