The ideas for paper quilt greeting cards are endless when you use the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies (144673) from Stampin’ Up! And, think about what a perfect Christmas gift quilt cards would make for that quilter in your life!! I’m back today with more quilt card inspiration.
The cards I’m sharing today use the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168). The coordinating colors are Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive. My focus on these cards will be the elements I used for their centers.
Here’s the first card:
- I used a simple punched 1/2″ cardstock circle for this card. This makes shapes in the center design look like a flower. (1/2″ Circle Punch, 119869)
- Note how I used designer paper on both the card front background as well as the quilt square background. The layers of solid color cardstock work well to separate the two patterns.
Here’s my second card:
- A die cut paper butterfly was placed in the center of this quilt block. Butterfly die is from the Move Me Thinlits (143732).
- I used Clear Wink of Stella (141897) on the butterfly body to add a hint of glitter.
Here’s my next card:
- A paper shape was again used for the center of this card…a star shape from the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies.
- Notice how the placement of the light and dark colors in the quilt pattern make it look like this design is reaching out towards you.
Here’s my fourth card:
- I used a silver foil (132178) shape for this card. Center shape is cut from a die in the Starlight Thinlits set (141840).
- I also created a border for this card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch (143721).
The ideas for paper quilt greeting cards center just kept coming. Here’s one more:
- I used the Eastern Medallions Thinlits (143725) to make this layered center element. It fits very well into this quilt design die shape.
Here’s my last card idea:
- I used a Glitter Enamel Dot (144200) in the center of this card. You could also use other embellishments such as: Metallic Enamel Shapes (141678), White Perfect Accents (138416), Pearl Basic Jewels (144219) or Rhinestone Basic Jewels (144220).
