Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown is about scrappy backgrounds.
Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge is to make a mother/special girl card.
I decided to mash the two challenges together into this one card.
I started by cutting strips of paper from my Mariposa Matstack. I didn't measure my strips, I just cut them into similar sizes. Then I arranged the strips on my card so they would cover the whole front.
It started to look a little bit like a quilt to me, so I added some dash lines on some of the strips so make it have the look of being sewn.
The front window panel I cut with my Cricut. I added some faux stitching around the heart and bottom border as well.
The "Mother" sentiment was cut with my Cricut as well. I cut it three times and then adhered them together to give it a little more dimension. I really wish I had some glitter to add to the sentiment. I think that would make it really pop.
