SHC - Geometric Quilt

....  Afternoon! I'm running late with my Seven Hills Craft blog post. I've been feeling very tired from my chemo, but this morning I woke full of energy, so decided to make a card for Jonathan's birthday:

Stamps: Concord & 9th - Make Some Noise
Inks: Memento - Paris Dusk, Canteloupe; Versamark
Dies: C&9 - Geometric Quilt Top Dies
Accessories: White, Navy, Grey & Gold Card; Gold Embossing Powder

I'm submitting this card to Color Throwdown - CTD#690 - totally inspired by the geometric cushion graphic. Also to Addicted to Stamps and More - ATSM#428 where the theme is birthday.

As soon as I saw the graphic on the the Color challenge I knew that I had to base my hubby's birthday card on it. I used my new Geometric Quilt top dies to cut a piece of white card - which has the whole pattern cut into it. I then used the diagonal and triangle dies to cut from navy, gold, grey, and white card stock. I spent sometime working out the pattern and then used liquid glue to adhere the pieces in place. I added the finished panel to the front of an A2 white note card. I finished the front by adding a simple birthday greeting in navy ink and gold embossing.

Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of navy card. On the white panel I stamped a fun birthday greeting in navy and soft gold ink.

That's all from me today. See you again soon.

Deborah, your card design is awesome and so perfect in these colors! Your husband will love it! Been there...done that with chemo! It was always the second day after chemo treatment that knocked me down. Praying you will fight this cancer battle and win!

WOW! Deborah, what a wonderful and clever card. Love the colours you used also, I know they are for the challenge, but they still look excellent.
Glad to hear you had a good day, wishing it continues.
