I have a workshop coming up and I know that a couple of the ladies are quilters. I do not quilt and well I knew I wasn't going to wow them w/ my abilites with fabric. I thought I would try my hand at "paper quilting". I went online and Googled quilt patterns. Omgosh, I would love to do a whole mess of different cards. There are so many amazing different patterns to try. I had a hard time deciding, so I chose more of a beginning design for me.
I cut squares that are 3/4" x 3/4". You may not be able to tell, but squares are a mixture of DSP (Blushing Bride and the retired Sweet Pea) and cardstock. I glued all the squares down onto a piece of scrap cardstock. I cheated and I added the Rose Red triangles last. I didn't want to risk gaps and thought when I ran it through the Big Shot to quilt--emboss it--you would never be able to tell. :)
I added a birthday sentiment from the set On Your Birthday and a satin bow with a button and linen thread in the center. I found a couple quilting pins in my stash and inserted through the backside of the bow under the button. If I were to send this card, I would probably snip off the sharp points of the pins.
Hint for making perfect tails on the end of the cardstock w/ the sentiment---a square punch! Try it--it works PERFECT! :)
