Quilted Birthday Cards

Happy Presidents Day, hope you all have the day off and are having a relaxing day.

I would like to share with you two cards that I made this weekend. It was so relaxing to have some time to play with my stamps and paper too. I have two aunts that have birthdays coming up, within a week of each other, and decided to have them made and done ahead of time for a change.

I used a one inch square punch to punch out my "quilt pieces" with, later I found out most use the 1 1/4" square punch but I didn't want to waste the punches so I went for it. Mine is what you would call a old time patch quilt, lol! This way too I didn't have to worry about getting the "sashing" even between the squares. After I had all of the pieces adhered to the card piece, I ran it thru the Big Kick using the Finial Press embossing folder. Than I used the designer frame embossing folder to hold my sentiment, I cut that out with my oval die cut. Added some ribbon and ink and I was very happy with my "quilt"!

Stampin" Up! supplies:

Designer series paper:Everyday Enchantment (SAB)
Card stock:Whisper White, Pool Party and Calypso Coral

Mary, I just love these quilt cards. Thanks for the inspiration. I have sewed for years and years, but would you believe I have never made a quilt? I keep thinking I will one of these days.....Maybe I can at least make some quilt cards, lol.
