Paper Quilt Greeting Cards

By | September 11, 2017

On Monday, I shared some tips and tricks for how to make paper quilt cards.  (Click the link to see that post.)  Today, I’m sharing specific tips I used on two of the individual paper quilt greeting cards.  I’ll share the other two cards on Wednesday.

Here are the cards I shared last week.

How to Make Paper Quilt Cards

 

Quilt products used on each of the cards are in the Quilted Christmas product suite in the NEW 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (pg 4-5).  This suite of products consists of the Christmas Quilt Bundle (146026), coordinating Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (144687), as well as coordinating designer paper, ribbon and embellishments.

 

This is the first card I designed with the paper quilt squares I created.

DESIGN NOTES:

  • I kept this card super simple and only used the Garden Green die cut frame and pieces of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (144613).  The die cut frame was attached directly to the Very Vanilla cardstock card front and the striped paper pieces were then added.  I used part of a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (144106) on the back of each 3″ square before die cutting.  This makes attaching the tiny quilt pieces easier!  Notice that the Very Vanilla peeking through in the quilt design is the cardstock used on the card front.
  • In my blog post last Monday, I suggested keeping the designer paper in “order” when removing from the Big Shot.  Well, I make that suggestion as a result of my real life experience.  Guess who had to figure out how these pieces went together to make a cohesive pattern?!!
  • Greeting stamp is from the Better Together stamp set (Wood 141733, Clear 141736).

 

Here’s the second of my paper quilt greeting cards I have to share today.

DESIGN NOTES:

  • This card is constructed the opposite of the first one I shared.  For this card, I filled in the outside spaces with the Painted Autumn Designer Paper and left the Garden Green background cardstock peeking through the center design.
  • I’m going to repeat the suggestion I made above…Make sure to keep your designer paper “in order” when you remove from the Big Shot after cutting.  It saves lots of time and headache!!
  • I made the border on the sentiment piece using one of the stamps in the Christmas Quilt stamp set (144793).  Instead of just stamping on the card front, I die cut a sentiment piece with the Everyday Label Punch (144668) and attached on top of a ribbon border.
  • Greeting stamp is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (Wood 141531, Clear 141534).

 

Make sure to stop back on Wednesday when I’ll share how the other two paper quilt greeting cards were made.
