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.
I didn’t want my ribbon to move so I glued down these edge pieces using glue dots.
A great finishing touch was to add some faux stitching. I used my Project Life Journaling pen and drew lines around the edges of the card.
This is the inside of the quilted card.
I also decorated a corner of the envelope so it would match! It really looks like a quilt, doesn’t it?
