Quilt Card


Today, I am doing something a little different for me.  I love looking at the quilt cards on Pintrest and decided to try my hand at one.  I started with an easy one with just one pinwheel.  I used my SB Square to cut out the print and white cardstock, them I cut them into fourths.  My white cardstock is from Georgia Pacific.  The designer paper is from MME Jack and Jill Collection.  After I made my quilt square I ran it through an embossing folder .  I used Anna Griffin's Poppy for Cuttlebug.  Then I popped it on top of another sheet of DP.  This completed my quilt square. 

I put the quilt square on top of my card.  I used more DP and cut out a flower with MFT Die-namics Plentiful Petals die cut.  I put this in the center of my quilt block.  Topped it with a button from Basic Grey and twine from my stash.   I put a sentiment on the bottom of the card using MFT Die-namics Sentiment Strip die cut.  Sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes Sentiment set and was punched out with SU Word Window punch.  That completes the card.
