Quilted Card

By | April 10, 2016

Have you ever made a quilted card before?
I haven’t! But today I gave it a try and you know what- it’s really not that hard! Plus, it’s a great way to use scrap paper! Let’s see what we did here..

First, I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock a little bit smaller than the base.  So it measured 4″ x 5 1/4″.

Next, I cut a bunch of scraps up to 1 1/4″ inch squares.  I have no idea how many I cut – let’s just call it a “bunch” okay? ha ha ha

Next, I lined them up diagonally across that white cardstock.  I did NOT glue them down, I was just placing them to get them where I wanted them.

There was no rhyme or reason to how I did this, I just placed the paper where I thought it looked good and tried to keep the same colors away from each other.

After that initial diagonal line was placed, I started to place other pieces to the left and right of it, making sure they all lined up.

After I had all the pieces where I wanted them, I glued them down in place.  Then, I turned the cardstock over and cut off the excess.

I wanted to add a sentiment, but the paper was so busy so I was careful to keep it small and not busy.  I heat embossed the sentiment in White embossing powder onto a piece of basic black card stock.  Then I punched it out with the Note Tag Punch and wrapped some matching ribbon around it.card patterns
