Quilted Christmas

Merry WishesWell…I warned you the other day that I am in the Christmas spirit already! So of course I have another Christmas project to share with you today. However, you can actually recreate card this for any occasion…just simply use different patterned papers. This is one of my favorite ways to use up scrap pieces of designer paper. It’s quick and easy! And the possibilities are endless!  Let me show you how to make this card.

No matter what kind of quilted cards you decide to make, start with a piece of cardstock that coordinates in color with one of the patterns of paper that you will be using.  For the purposes of instruction, I will give you information on how I made this particular card.  Start with a piece of cherry cobbler cardstock for the base of the card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Punch out 12 squares of patterned paper using a 1 1/4 inch square punc004h. I used some of the old scrap Christmas papers that I had on hand. Now I realize the 1 1/4 punch is retired from Stampin’ Up! so if you have a 1 inch square punch that will work just as well; however, I would recommend cutting your white piece of paper at 5 x 3 3/4 inches if you don’t want large white spaces in between all of the squares. Adhere all of the squares to your white cardstock as shown. For the finishing touches, add a bit of ribbon across the center of your quilted background and a layered sentiment.  I used the decorative label, scalloped oval and modern label punches for the layering of the sentiment. Enjoy!
