You Rock ~ Quilted Swirl Stitch

Just a quick little thank you card using the Direct To Paper technique from the Dye Ink Class at Creativity Grows Here.  It's such a simple technique for creating your own custom colored backgrounds.   By overlapping the colors I was able to get 5 colors using just 3 ink pads.

With CAS (Clean And Simple) designs I find that the little details make all the difference.  For this card that detail is the stitching.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the focal piece and layered it onto a clean white card base that had been die cut with the Quilted Swirl Stitch die from Lil' Inker Designs.

Stamps: The Big The Bold & You (Winnie & Walter)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up!); Green Apple (Simon Says Stamp)
Paper: Whisper White (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Quilted Swirl Stitch Pattern Die (Lil' Inker Designs)
