Christmas Quilt Cards

I love making these quilt cards. They are so simple and look amazing when they are finished. I am a little messy with the 2 way glue, but it is so easy to get the squares stuck down tight and you can wiggle them into place if they are a little crooked.

I am trying to use up some old DSP--I didn't think I had a lot until I started finding packages stuck here and there when I was moving into my Stampin' Room. NOW I know I have a problem--I had to have a 'paper hoarder', because I AM a paper hoarder. LOL The addiction is not limited to paper; however, so I need to stamp to make room to buy new things. It's a WIN-WIN situation right there!
Ohh, I am looking for creative ways to mat the SU! wide oval...any suggestions? It's a little plain w/o something behind it, but I was completely clueless on where to go w/ it.

Stamps: All Holidays
CS: Whisper White, Old Olive, Bravo Burgandy, Bashful Blue
DSP: Holiday Thyme
Accessories: ribbon, SU! brads, flower, snowflake punch, SU! Top Note Die, 2 way glue, embossing folders


  1. Wendy - in the Lots of Tags die cuts, one of the tags is a nice 'mat' for the wide oval punch. You could try that - I think it would look nice with this card.

  2. Love the cards! I will have to try Maureen's tip on matting the wide oval punch. I just bought that punch or I should say got it with my free hostess merchandise. Yahoo! Gotta love SU!
    I love the colors on that retired DSP!

  3. Love the cards. I could wall paper my entire home with DSP and still have plenty left for crafting. You are going to have to make ginat cards if you want to work through all that paper with this design. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I just love them! Now I've got great inspiration for some quick Christmas cards! Thank you :)
