Lady Quilted Card

There’s something very comforting about a quilt – especially an old vintage quilt that has been used for centuries by family members and passed down from generation to generation. It is that thought that recently sparked the idea of using all my Lady Pattern Paper pieces from previous projects to create a quilted card.
Exquisite Lady Quilted Card

I know I have used my scraps for tons of different things and I will continue to do so – to recycle and re-use and love those little bits of magic, even if it is pieces together with threads to create something even more beautiful.

Step 1

Collect all the scraps of paper you want to use for your card. I kept to a basic palette of pink, teal and buff for this feminine card.

Step 2

Measure the front of your card base and then cut the paper scraps into pieces to create a quilted look. I did wing it as I went along, but one tip is to start at the bottom and work your way up to the top.

TIP: Make a rough sketch onto scrap paper of how you want your quilted card to look, and then simply cut paper pieces to match your sketch. The exact sizing of the paper pieces can be adjusted when you lay them out and before adhering anything to your base card.

Step 3

Ink the edges of the paper pieces and adhere them to your card.

Step 4

For my inked piece in the top left hand corner I inked watercolour paper and added a stamp sticker to it as my focal point.

Step 5

Stamp sentiment/wording onto the bottom panel. Add a stamped flag to the right of the sentiment.

Step 6

Add sewing details to your card using your sewing machine or by hand for an even more authentic look.

Finish off your quilted card with buttons and pearls.

And there you have a pieced together card using the tiniest of paper scraps from Lady Pattern Paper. This truly is a card fit for a Lady. Feminine and beautiful!

So remember to keep those little paper scraps in a box that is easy to reach and use them don’t just store them for in case one day…
