Eight Navajo Blankets

“Navajo Blanket #1”, “Navajo Blanket #2”, “Navajo Blanket #3”, “Navajo Blanket #4”, “Navajo Blanket #5”, “Navajo Blanket #6”, “Navajo Blanket #7” and “Navajo Blanket #8” were stamped in various Kaleidocolor pads and solid colored pads of matching colors. Kaleidocolor confetti card stock was layered over sage green card stock. Removable double stick tape was placed on the back of each of the cut-out blankets so that they could be moved easily until I was satisfied with the overall design. Notice that the blankets are over some and under others and overlap the sage green layer. A raffia bow was added to the corner for an embellishment. Card by Margaret Wiggin.
