Quilted Card

This is my attempt at a 'quilted' card - don't look too closely at the stitching... it's a new machine and I'm still getting used to having an electric sewing machine dedicated to card making. My other one is a Singer with a treadle that I don't like to use on cards as it only does one stitch - forwards!! Anyway, I used some gorgeous K&Co papers - from the Amy Butler 'Belle' collection. They were a 6x6 pad, and are only £2.50 for 36 sheets! Needless to say I have quite a few packs sat waiting to be used :)

This is the sketch over at 365cards, and I made each square 4cm x 4cm, cutting some on diagonals and leaving others whole. I assembled them how I wanted them and stitched over all the joins - not the neatest job in the world, but these fangle-dangle machines are so FAST!! The blue is Core'dinations and I finished it off with some half pearls.

Thanks for looking!
