MFT Color Challenge 33



We've got a new color challenge for you this week at MFT.



I took the opportunity to use the new Diagonal Quilt Square Cover-Up.

The great thing about using cover ups like this is that if you're going to die cut multiple colors, you can basically make multiple cards, which is what I did here because I need more Christmas cards.

My 'official' card stays pretty true to the traditional quilt aesthetic.  I added a simple greeting from Hand Lettered Holidays.

Then I started playing a bit more with the pieces of the quilt.  These next too cards give a more modern vibe.





On this last card I also popped up the Steel Grey pieces for some added dimension.



In creating all these cards I used the 'webbing' of one of the cuts as a guide when adhering the pieces.

That's it for me today, be sure to head over to the blog to see the rest of the team's projects!
