C016 Quilt Card

1. Prepare card by folding 51/2" x 81/2" black cardstock in half using a bone folder to make a nice crease. Set aside.

2. With a square stamp #14106.F page 66, stamp with black Memories ink, 20 times on scraps of 20 different coloured cardstock.

3. Cut out the 20 stamped squares.

4. Place 12 squares in rows, 4 across and 3 down so that the arrangement looks good to you.

5. Glue the squares to a 4” x 5.25” black piece of construction paper. After all 12 pieces are glued, trim the black construction paper to match the quilt.

6. Mount the finished piece the pre-folded black card.

7. Now it is time to embellish. Find two or three cancelled postage stamps that match in colour. Add four or five of the extra stamped pieces on top of the finished piece or as a diagonal between four. Mount some of them with foam tape for a 3D look. You can layer more than one if one is cut with decorative scissors. Place a cut up square in each corner. You can double up on mounting the squares too. Charms look good glued here and there. I did some of my layering with stamp #30018.L page 222. Anything goes on this fun card!

I learned this from a class posted by Linda Gerig. According to the info I have, she learned this technique at a class she took from Linda Sarine. Linda had adapted it from an article in Somerset Studio.

First taught this class on June 27, 2001.
