Painted Autumn Quilt Themed Greeting Card

By | October 23, 2017

I love making quilt themed cards…and today I have a Painted Autumn quilt themed greeting card I’d like to share with you.

Quilt themed greeting cards seem to be very popular right now.  Stampin’ Up! has a Quilt Builder Framelits Set (144673) in their new holiday catalog, which makes creating quilt themed cards a breeze!!  But, there are ways to create quilt themed cards without framelit dies.  The quilt themed card I’m sharing today uses designer paper scraps from the Painted Autumn Designer Paper pack (144613)

Tips on making the Painted Autumn quilt themed greeting card

  1. Start with a 1 1/2″ square for the center of the card.  I used PeekABoo Peach cardstock, but you could also use a square of patterned paper.
  2. Attach the square in the center of a 3 3/4″ base piece (I used Whisper White).
  3. Attach 1/2″ strips of designer paper to the base piece, working out from the center square.  Make sure to snug up each pattern paper strip to the one next to it so that the base piece doesn’t show through.  Strip edges can extend past the base piece and be trimmed off when the entire piece is covered.
  4. That’s it!!  A simple way to make a quilt themed card and a GREAT way to use up those scraps of designer paper laying around the craft area!!
