Paper Quilted Card…

Many of you know that, while I am a teacher of paper-crafting, I’m also a quilter. For a long time now I’ve wanted to combine the two art forms. This is the card I came up with and hopefully it’s only the first of many, “Paper Quilted Cards.” This card was one of the projects  offered at Sunday’s class. It’s a fun technique and the results are truly delightful.

Quilt Birthday Card

The card is pretty straight forward. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Wisteria Wonder (love this color) and scored it at 4-1/4″


Place the front of the card in the  Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot.


Punch two 1-3/8″ Squares each,  out of Calypso Coral and Early Espresso card stock and place the squares in the Petals-A-Plenty Embossing Folder and run them through the Big Shot.


Punch two 1-3/8″ Squares from Stampin’ Up! Berry Blossom Designer Series Paper. Cut all these two squares in half diagonally.


On a 1″ x 3″ piece of Early Espresso stamp “Happy Birthday” from the Perfectly Penned stamp set in VersaMark Ink and heat emboss it with White Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.


Layer all the pieces as shown.


Play round with different quilt patterns and Designer Series Papers that resemble printed fabric.


Have fun with this one!
