I have done lots of Quilted Cards in the past. You can check one of them out here! It is a great way to use up those little scraps that you have leftover after doing other cards! This card uses the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog! Let’s get started!!!
I started with a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock measuring 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″. I cut my strips of Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper into 3/4″ strips but you can do it with all different sizes as well. They can be any length. There are lots of different ways to create a quilt card. You can do either a “V” or an “X”, just diagonal stripes or the 3 strips like I did above! You will add adhesive to the back of your strip and then place it on your cardstock. It doesn’t matter where you begin, it can be in the middle or off to the side. For the one above, I placed one down and then 2 others, then turn and add 3 more strips. I placed a small space between each one but you can place them side by side too! There are lots of variations to this card and there is no right or wrong way. You will work your way out doing 3 strips and then turning after each section until you hit the edge. Once you have a few strips down, just trim off the ends and then re-use that strip in another section of the card. Once it was all complete, I added it to a piece of Rose Red measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and then placed it on a Crumb Cake card base! For the greeting, I used the Petite Pairs Stamp Set and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. I punched another one in Garden Green and layered it behind the greeting with this technique here! I added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals of course! You can place it over any boo boos you made or over the center of your crosses or anywhere you would like! I thought it needed a little ribbon or something so I added a little Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow! I love it!!!
