Today I have a quilt card I made for my sister's birthday. I kept the embellishments to a minimum so I wouldn't be covering up the pretty star pattern. (Don't look too closely though...I have a little to much spacing between some pieces.)
I made the top quilt piece for this last year with my crafting buddy in California, Brenda. Sure do miss us crafting together on Thursday nights... :-( Brenda had a bunch of patterns from her quilting (fabric) folder and we decided on this one here.
We're not sure where this came from so I don't know who to give credit to if needed. Basically, we cut 1" squares for each block and cut the pieces diagonally for the half squares. Brenda had a 1" square punch which makes it a lot easier than using a paper cutter. I can't get perfect 1" squares with my cutter.
This is the same technique I used on my Christmas Quilt Card here back in 2011. The Quilted Card Technique is originally from Split Coast Stampers in the Resources section here. It's a fun technique if you want to try it out!
Here's the inside of the card, just a simple sentiment.
Stamps: Well Scripted (SU)
Paper: Tan, off-white (Recollections), Secret Garden Patterns & Solids (Graphic 45)
Ink: Soft Suede (SU) for sentiment, Antique Linen Distress (Ranger) for sponging
Accessories: Button, peach floss, Cream Seam Binding, Bow-Easy Tool (Really Reasonable Ribbon), Square Lattice Embossing Folder (SU), Labels One, Decorative Labels One (Spellbinders), SU Grid Paper.
