Hello, Ava here to share a faux Quilt Block that I made for my card. There are lots of quilting resources on the web; pinterest, you tube, blogs, websites and google all of which can bring you plenty of inspiration.
Start with gathering your supplies and of course you are allowed to change your mind at any time through the quilting experience.
Using 2 different stamps from the Ann Butler 1″ Doily Picnic stamp set; stamp 1 row of each of the different stamps onto a 10 inch by 4 inch strip of 110 lb Core’dinations Cardstock.
Trim your 2 stamped strips to 3/4″ wide and then cut your squares 3/4″ again. Cut 8 squares measuring 3/4″ x 3/4″. Do this again with the other pattern stamp strip as well as your plain cardstock strip using the same measurements. So, before you start, pile up your 3 types of squares, (2 different stamped patterns and 1 regular cardstock)
Have your quilt block template pattern that you have decided to use for your project in front of you. Using an adhesive tape runner, place plenty of strips of glue onto a 3″ x 3″ cardstock square. Follow your chosen Quilt Block pattern and start repeating the pattern for your card by cutting and placing your papers onto your cardstock block.
Step # 4
Once you have everything figured out and in place, mat your 3″ Quilt Block and assemble your card elements onto your card base.
Step # 5
Stamp your card with a sentiment of your choice.
