I just wanted to thank everyone again for their support with Paper Crafts Gallery Idol! It was a fun ride and I'm thrilled that I got as far as I did. :) Thanks to the PC staff as well for hosting it year after year -- I'm sure its not trivial.
The hubs and I are going white water rafting tomorrow. For some reason, when the hubs asked if I wanted to go, I thought this was like a 2 hours venture... nope... it's 6 hrs... Wish me luck! (Here's hoping I don't come back looking like a lobster! I burn like no other)
When I was in high school my mom started a quilt for me. We went to the discount section of Joann's and I got to pick some fabrics out. It was intended for me as a college gift. Turns out that it took my mom 7 years to finish that quilt and became my brother's college quilt.
So why not make a fun card inspired by the memories invoked by quilts? I cut a 4 by 4 square and then lay all my patterned paper pieces on it. Trimed the edges and then proceeded to paper pierce each and every square. I then added some faux stitching with my black pen.
Since the card is all sorts of colors, I added 3 buttons in different colors using the prominent colors in my paper quilt. I might not be able to sew but I can certainly pretend. ;-)
For diagonals, cut a piece of paper to adhere your patterned paper to. Then trim the edges. Easy peasy!
