Look Ma! I quilted!

I love quilted items although, I have never, in my life, quilted anything prior to today's card.
Quite a few things I surround myself with are quilted. The toilet paper me and my sensitive body parts prefer is quilted. And my paper towels are the quilted quicker picker upper kind. I have a quilted red jacket that I could not live with out when I saw it at Old Navy a few years ago (price tags are still attached and it has lived in my closet since). My grandmother-in-law gave me and The Accountant a crazy quilt for our wedding that she made. While not beautiful, that flannel backed quilt is wonderfully cozy and warm.
All that to say, making today's card was fun and I love the way it turned out because it has the quilted look to it. I originally saw a version of it on Splitcoast stampers and had to try it right away. Using every pattern of a single Designer Paper pack, I punched out squares with my 1 1/4 square punch. I glued them in neat rows on to a piece of cheap white thin cardstock. I placed the cardstock on to the Top Note Die and ran it through my Big Shot. Awesome!
