Quilting with Paper

Hello, again! I hope this finds you well. Last time, I showed you how to make a simple easel card. This time I wanted to give you an idea for the card front. My friend is making quilts, and that inspired me to make one, too! This one used lovely paper from the Woven Threads collection, which has just the right faded-by-wear look for a quilt. The card base was made like the one in the previous post.

The quilt was made with 1.25 inch squares, in three patterns. You could cut them out with a paper trimmer, or use a die. These were glued to a 3.75 inch square of cardstock, covering the entire square. Glue that piece to a 4 inch square of paper to form the “binding” for the quilt, and attach it to the top of a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card front. Ordinarily, I might have place a sentiment on the front under the quilt, or on the “stopper” on the inside, but I just got these lovely dies that make a pattern in paper, and I thought they worked nicely with the quilt. What do you think? I glued the diecut patterned pieces to a piece of white cardstock, and adhered them with dimensional foam dots.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Comments are appreciated, and I hope you are inspired to make your own paper quilt!

Happy stamping,

Michelle
