Haiku Quilt

These cards are really hot lately, have you noticed?? :-) And I'm such a "follower," I had to make one! I {♥} this idea!

For this one, I used my best-loved-but-retired Haiku paper. You punch out squares and adhere them to a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 3/4 x 5, then run through the Big Shot with a Top Note Die. Ta da! It's a quilted Top Note! I added a bit of So Saffron 5/8 ribbon (available on Feb 1 for Sale-a-bration) and a little (retired) rub-on. These are some of my favorite colors, so this card really cheered me up!

And for those of you who have been following my weather inversion saga, we have BLUE SKIES today! The sun actually peeked through yesterday afternoon, and it is wonderful!


Paper: Haiku DSP (retired), Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: So Saffron 5/8 Grosgrain (available Feb 1), Big Shot, Top Note Die, 1 1/4" square punch, last year's SAB rub-ons

Love the quilted look. I haven't done one of these yet, either, so it looks like a great project for tonight!
