Quilt Cards



I finally had a chance to try some quilt cards! They are so easy to make: Take a 5 x 3 3/4" piece of lightweight cardstock for the base (I trim a 4 x 6" index card down to this size), cut twelve - 1 1/4" squares from scraps and adhere them to the base with adhesive. (I like to lay the squares out in a 4 x 3 square pattern first before adhering.) Then cut out in any shape you desire using Nestibilities. I used the Labels Four Nesties for these two cards. I used rub ons for the sayings or you could use sentiment stamps on the card base. Adding 3-D embellishments adds a nice touch. I think I'll have to try adding some small buttons on my next versions! Complete the cards by using a coordinated marker to make faux stitches around the edge of the final shape.
