Quilt Inspired Card

This is a fun card making project. This card is inspired from a quilt pattern. Here is how to make it.
The finished size of your card will be 5x5.

Take a 5 x 10" piece of cardstock
Score at 5"  fold in half
1st mat size is 4 1/2x 4 1/2, sponge edges to soften the look
2nd mat size is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
3rd mat size is 3 x 3
Take 5 one inch squares in one pattern
Take 1 one inch square on another pattern
Place the 5 one inch squares on each corner and place one in the center
Cut the remaining  one inch square in half diagonal, then cut in half diagonal again
You will have 4 triangle squares
Place the 4 triangles in between the four corners
Take one matching button and thread with waxed linen and tie a knot
Place the button in center, adhere with either zots or other adhesive

There you have it, a very simple yet beautiful card. I made one in black, cream and grey tones and I also made one in a christmas pattern. Both pictures are shown.

The last thing you need is to have FUN!!! I would love to see your finished card so feel free to email me so I can what an amazing job you did.

Hi, I'm Terri!

Hi, ya'll! My name is Terri and my passion is photography and making cards. This is my new blog and will be adding lots of videos on how to make cards, how to use the cricut, gypsy and even the cuttlebug. Like you I like to go online to get ideas and how to's. Most of the videos that I have watched the people always just run down the sizes and the materials needed really fast. I usually will have to watch it a few times to write down everything needed to make the item. One thing you will find differently in my blog is that I will list all the sizes and materials needed so that you will be able to go step by step easily. Please feel free to use the same materials and patterns that I do but I do ask that you do not submit my work as your own on any other website. Coming soon will be how to videos so please come back soon to view those. In the meantime if there is anything you would like me to post please feel free to let me know. I look forward to hearing from you. Let's have fun doing what we do best, crafting and creating!
