Quilt Cards

I spent the weekend at a scrapbook retreat in Wisconsin (White's Wildwood Retreat), and two to the ladies in attendance were quilters. I think I may take up quilting when I retire, but for now I thought I would keep it short and sweet on a couple of cards. You start with a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch piece of card stock. Cut out a 1" square and adhere it so it looks like a diamond in the middle of the paper. Cut 1" strips of decorative paper (Razzleberry Lemonade and Merry Momements used in these samples) and begin to attach them using mono-adhesive until you completely cover the card stock. Use the Top Note die cut in the Big Shot, and embelish the center and the rest of the card as you choose. For now, this is my quilting project. Enjoy!
