"Parisian Flourish" Paper Quilt Technique with VIDEO!

Hi Friends! I'm excited to share a beautiful background technique with you today! This "Paper Quilt" technique is super FUN and I just love it - I think you will as well. While I used 1" x 1" squares, this technique will also work beautifully with strips of paper, or another shape and design conducive to quilt patterns. I really like the look of the squares for today's card designs. 

I couldn't resist pulling out the new "Little Ladybug" stamp set for this card, but wouldn't it also look gorgeous with flowers, die cuts, or other embellishments and sentiments?!
You can use any Designer Series Paper patterns, different coloured card stock, stamped card stock, leftover scraps, etc. Try different colour combinations and alternative stamp sets too. I also used our new "Parisian Flourish" 3-D Embossing Folder to create the raised embossed texture for a quilted look (which is AMAZING) - most embossing folders will work too, giving a multitude of fabulous designs. 

For this card, I used the "Parisian Dies" and no embossing folder.

I love the vintage look of this card! After I ran the quilted layer through the "Parisian Flourish" embossing folder, I sponged a light layer of Early Espresso ink over top. The sentiment, from the "Parisian Beauty" stamp set, is stamped onto a strip of Pool Party card stock, and a few rhinestones finished off the card.

I hope you give this technique a try and enjoy the versatility of this fun background!

Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
