Hello Friend Quilted Card Project / 8 Days Remaining for Sale-A-Bration!

Hello Friend quilted card project

Today’s card project uses the Friendly Hello Stamp Set and coordinating Friendly Hello 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. These items are offered together for FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $100 purchase from any current catalog. But don’t delay…Sale-A-Bration is ending soon! Credit goes to Wendy Cranford for the idea for today’s card.

I started off by cutting an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card base from Thick Basic White cardstock, scoring at 4-1/4″. A Basic White mat measuring 5-1/4″ x 4″ was cut. On this mat a pencil line was drawn from the upper left corner to the lower right corner to be used as a guideline for placing the first strip onto the mat. 3/4″ x 7″ strips were cut from the Friendly Hello DSP. Strips were then randomly placed on the mat, occasionally changing direction and ensuring that the paper ends of the strips match flush with the strip they are touching. The strips will hang over the edges of the mat which are then trimmed flush to the mat. The result is a quilted background card front! How cool is this?

To finish off the card the mat was adhered to the front of the card front. A sentiment label was die cut from third smallest rectangular dies from the Stitched So Sweetly dies in Fresh Fresia and a greeting from the Hello Friend stamp set was stamped onto the label, then popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A linen thread double bow was added to the sentiment label. A strip of coordinating DSP was used on the inside of the card as well as on the envelope flap to finish the card off.

I had fun making this card – being a quilter it reminded me of picking out fabrics for a new quilt! This card project took significantly less time than making a quilt, though (smile)! Be sure to take advantage during Sale-A-Bration to secure these free items – you won’t want to miss them!

Happy quilting…err, I mean happy crafting!
