Crazy for Quilt Cards!

Hi Everyone! I had a lot of fun making the faux quilted Father's Day card that I tried some more.

I made this card for a Scrapbooking Class that I am teaching on Monday. I am hoping that everyone will like making it. I thought it would be perfect for a class because it can easily be customized.

Now I decided to make a couple cards that WERE quilt squares. I used the Stampin Up! Scallop square Die with my Big Shot. I scored the top square so that the card would open easily and then I adhered it to the bottom square. On this card I used the stamp set called Sweetheart. I love this set so I am really excited that it will be in the new catalog. It also coordinates with the heart shaped treat cups! Papers were from my scrap basket ( I picked out all my polka dot papers) and the ribbon is from Jo-Ann's. The ink is the new Cherry Cobbler and the paper is Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler.


This card also used Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla and 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Black


I also wanted to give a shout out to Goatesgirl! She has a wonderful blog and she has a beautiful card using faux stitching. It is a really cute quilted card. Check it out here: http://lovelifecrafts.blogspot.com/2010/06/blog-post.html

She also said that these quilted papers will cut easily with the cricut. So I am off to try that!

Thanks for looking!
