Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today’s card is fun and easy to create and it’s done with our stunning designer series paper. Yesterday I talked about layouts and patterns, and how we can utilize them to help us create …
Well, I had saved a “Quilt” piece on my Pinterest page and was surprised to see how many times this simple design had been saved. I saved it as inspiration for a card …
Simple … right? But there is something about this simple pattern that catches your eye. Is it the colors or the pattern, not sure but I’ve taken the pattern and used it for today’s card.
I decided I wanted to make a Christmas card with the beautiful Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper ….
My designer paper strips are cut 4″ x 1″ and matted the woven pieces onto a 4″ x 4″ block. Now I know that Quilters have cut these into different sizes but it is “Simply Sunday”! You really have to respect the artistry and work that goes into a quilt.
I used my grid paper (available in catalog) to help me align my designer paper strips. Just added a touch of glue within the 1″ block and adhered my strip. The glue allows you a little more movement.
Once you have woven the pieces together and glued the ends down, you can finish gluing the pieces down. I then attached the entire 4″ x 4″ piece onto a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4.
The greeting was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink … it came from the “Light Me Home” stamp set. I finished off my card with a bow created with the Real Red Sheer ribbon … oh my, this ribbon is beautiful, and comes from the Poinsettia Place suite.
With a little help from your grid paper, this sweet Christmas card is easy to make and reflects the old age craft of Quilting. Use any pretty paper and you could create cards for all Occasions!
Thank you for sharing a part of your Sunday with me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I would like to know the cutting dimensions of the block.
The block is 4″ x 4″ … the paper strips are 1″ x 4″ and are just woven in between each other … they are not cut different lengths. It is an illusion of weaving the paper.
What an eye-catching card, and a GREATA way to use some of those scraps that we never want to throw away! 😂
Thank You Diane!! I agree it’s a great way to use up scraps, and it’s super easy to make. Have a great day, Linda
