Cricut Artbooking quilt card

  Hello, friends!

Today I have a fun card that I made using the Artbooking cartridge and the Stitch Wonder stamp set. This cartridge has several scrapbook layout specific cute. I challenged myself to find other uses for them. Initially, this overlay has cutouts for photos. However, you can make it smaller and put anything square in the open slots. When I imaged it in my head it made me think of a quilt. Luckily I happen to have a stamp set that has a quilting theme and went perfectly with my idea. Don't you love when that happens!

To make my card look quilted I used my cuttlebug. I have been trying to figure out the name of the cuttlebug folder I used, but I cannot remember. It is one of my favorites though!

I just wanted to remind all of you that if I have a word highlighted you can click on it and it will take you to that item on my shopping page. I mention this because I noticed that in comments yesterday I saw someone ask me about the color ready seam binding ribbon. Simple click on the name of the item and it will take you where you want to go!

Like t4he quilt look. The embossing folder resembles a Stampin' Up embossing folder named Modern Mosaic. I have a Cuttlebug embossing folder named Morrocan that is somewhat similar but different.
