…well pretend quilt.
Around Christmas time I did a class for the Big Shot, and one of the cards we made was a fun one that looked like a quilt. Here is the link. So everyone loved this card. When the girls wanted to do a class at their club house during Sale-a-Bration, so they could introuduce me to more of their friends, they wanted to make a quilt card, and I was like well you can't do the same one cause, some had already done it and by the time the class came around the paper would not be current. So I played around and did this card, I knew the paper I wanted to use, but I had no idea it would turn out so cute. I totally want to make 100 of these cards, sew them together and put them on my bed.
Ink: Basic Black, Bordering Blue, Basic Black Journaler
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Bella Birds DSP
Misc: Top Note Die, Cuttlebug folder, curly label punch, flower fusions, and RR brads
This turned out so cute didn't it?
Here you can see the texture a bit better. I used a cuttlebug folder cause it goes deeper then the textured plates, and since I had all this DSP and cardstock I really wanted to see the look of a quilt.
So there are gonna be around 30 ladies there tomorrow, and I thought well, we will be there all day punching squares, so I punched them at home.
I mean heck, if someone is gonna get carpal tunnel it might as well be me right?
So what does 384 squares look like (I cut for 32- just in case, plus I need one to demo)
This is what it looks like, all neat in a row waiting to be stuffed in their envelopes.
Wanna see the scraps left over from all this punching?
Here…'tis with the hot punch. See the smoke coming off it?
Well I am gonna hit the hay so I can get up early and get my last minute stuff done. The old headache is rearing its ugly head again tonight.
Have a super Wednesday everyone, and thanks for stopping in!
Talk about hot punches…that thing was smokin' …cute card!!!
I can't believe you PUNCHED all those squares!! I would have just cut them with the paper cutter. LOVE the card though – very pretty!

BEAUTIFUL JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!! The colors are just yummy, I sooo wish I lived close to you, Any chance you moving to Central Cali??? 🙂
Julie Davison says
Wow! This card is gorgeous!! I love the texture over the entire card.
Beautiful card! I'm sure your hand did hurt after punching that many squares. What a fun card to make! Wish I could be there!
Nicole Anderson says
You are so smokin' hot, and I bet that punch really WAS TOO! HaHa! I thought the same thing as LisaC (above) and I would have just cut them all, too. BUT after thinking about it, I guess if you make a square even a 1/16 too big or too small you would see it! WOW, you are so patient!
SUPER CUTE CARD!

I'm with Julie — how about you moving to West Virginia. I love all your samples and am so jealous of your neighbors/friends who can come to all your classes! But I get a whole lot from your blog so I am pretty happy. This quilt card is fantastic and came at the right time. I am in the middle of creating some cards (b-day, thanks and general) for a friend who made a child's quilt for my grandaughter and asked for no $$ but said she would prefer some handmade cards. I agreed and plan a dozen or two. I will definitely do 6 of these for her to use as general cards — maybe with her quilting gifts??? I hope she likes them. Thank you so much for all the great ideas.

If you're going to move, make it WYOMING!! And I would love to have the twin quilt you make cuz this is gorgeous, beautiful, and something I'm going to have to try. Thanks so much for sharing. Mary Jo
This would make such a cute baby card!!! A tutorial would be nice…..
Did you walk today?
so how did you do it?? Deets please!
I'm with LisaC on this one…I would have been running the wheel off my paper cutter…or rotary cutter that I use when I quilt!!!!
I love this card and will so have to CASE it for a couple of my Aunts who also quilt.
I luv it Deb! This card is just so beautiful! I have a baby card to make & I just might use this idea, thanks for the inspiration! Looks like you have been a busy lady punching all these squares, that punch is sizzling HOT!!!

Gotta love anything involving Punches and Big Shot. Am I right in guessing you used the smaller square punch? And that cuttlebugging folder was the last step before final assembly and embellishment.
Thanks for sharing. My MIL is an awesome quilter too ill to quilt anymore so I'm hoping to get her interested in something she can make for her quilter buddies and your card will fill the bill nicely.
Hugs and blessings – Jean
This card is fabulous! I thought it was beautiful anyway but when I enlarged the picture it really showed it's beauty. SUPER job.
Wow that is alot of punching!! It all paid off though because the card is gorgeous!
Thanks for sharing
Di, that card is absolutely beautiful! Of course the DP had a little to do with it huh? I love all the new paper that came out. You are the bombslickety girl!
Wow! This is gorgeous Di! Love the texture on it!
What a wonderful beautiful card!!! Love it!! Thanks for sharing! Yeah, I wish you would live near me too! LOL! Cheers!
