Crazy Quilt Card

Crazy Quilt Card 2

I am fascinated by quilts.  Old ones, new ones, it doesn’t matter…

I love all the colors and patterns.

I once thought I might enjoy making a quilt.

But… I knew I’d never have the patience to finish the job.  (So I quit before I even started.)

Quilt Stamp  Crafter's Ink 87508-Canyon

I recently received some new stamps and inkpads from Ann Butler Designs and

Clearsnap to use for a Blog Hop with a few other designers.

The stamps I received are quilt themed stamps and the Crafter’s ink is perfect for fabric, wood and

more.  Being a paper crafter… my first thought was a quilt card.  (Now that’s a quilt I can make.)

Quilt Card Supplies Used:

Here’s how I made the card:

  1. Cut 1″ squares from the pre-stamped colored paper.  Make extra so that some of them can be cut in 1/2 diagonally.  I stamped the “basket” stamp several times on a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of paper to create my background piece.
  2. I made a 5″ x 5″ scored grid to glue my 1″ squares on.  You don’t necessarily need to make a grid, you could actually glue it right onto the background piece.  I found it easier to arrange and re-arrange my squares on the grid before gluing.   It also helped me keep the squares straight when gluing.
  3. Once pattern is glued down, create secondary pattern by adding cut 1/2″ squares.
  4. Adhere quilt card onto 5 1/2″ stamped square and additional layers.  Finished card is 6″ x 6″.
