The patchwork Christmas card was so much fun yesterday, I decided to give it a whirl today and complete a three card set for my hostess. This year’s holiday mini is filled with so many beautiful sets, it was hard to choose which to feature next. I decided to use the hostess set Patterned Pines, this could be hers with a $150.00 workshop. All feature the designer paper Merry Moments. It creates wonderful cards and projects.
There were several questions about how yesterday’s card was achieved. I’ll attempt to explain it again. Begin by cutting 9 squares 1 5/16″ each taping them together to form a quilt. Next cut a 3 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ piece of quilt batting and attach this to the back of the paper quilt with tape. Then layer it to 4 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ Garden Green cardstock and stitch at the seams. Distress 10, 1 5/16″ squares on all four sides and cut diagonally across. Attach 5 triangles to each side with snail. Finally stitch around outside edge of quilt attaching each triangle. The quilt was mounted on 5 1/8″ x 5 1/8″ Garden Green cardstock and the card base was 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla. If it is still unclear, send me an email ,and I will try again.
Well without further delay, this is card two and my share for today. Hope you’ll stop by tomorrow for the final card in the set. Hope you’ll have fun making a few quilt cards of your own!
