I started by making a grid of squares, inking the edges of my white squares:
This square measures 3" by 3", each square is 1".
Next, I embossed. This is what makes it look quilted!
A quilt is layers of fabric held together by decorative stitching. This is layers of paper held together with embossing - love it! It's a fun, new-to-me way of using my embossing textures! Here's my finished card:
From Flamingo Scraps: American Crafts Dear Lizzy Enchanted Patterned Papers; Prima flowers and e-line bling, Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Other supplies: American Crafts cardstock; Stampin' Up! Stamp, Ink & Punches
And I had to laugh when one of my two scrappy helpers hopped into one of my pictures:
So have you ever embossed together layers of paper?
