A Quilt Card

According to my friend Amy over at A New Song these cards are all the rage today! I've seen them around before, but I thought they looked to complicated to try, but as it turns out they are super easy! I used the new DSP, Tea Paper. I used Mono Multi to adhere all the squares to the white cardstock and let it dry before running it through the Big Shot.

The base of the card is Pretty in Pink and I tied Certainly Celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon around the top. I stamped Birthday wishes in the corner using Perfect Plum, it doesn't show up very well, but I didn't want to cover up any of the top note with extra layers. I also added Filigree brad in the lower right hand corner. That's it. Very simple and very pretty. I was just playing around with this, I can't wait to do this again! I was thinking this would make a good Easter card. Just add a Happy Easter, what do you think? The colors are right!

Anyone else ready for spring? I love snow, I think it is so beautiful when it covers the trees and is all fluffy, but I hate driving in it, I hate when it takes an hour to get 10 minutes away!! Luckily we don't get a lot of snow here, but we did get over 10 inches yesterday. Oh well, it won't be long now, right?

This is so cute! What a great idea - and make the quilt first, then cut it out. I would be there trying to assemble a puzzle having cut it out first LOL!
