Topic: Pretty Paper
I always make a Christmas card for our quilting group leader that has a 'quilted' look to it.
This year I went BIG with a 6 x 6 inch card. I used scraps from some of the recent Christmas papers I had on my desktop and started cutting lots of strips from them. Then I used the plaid and cut a 1 inch square. I used the strips around the squares to create a log cabin block - 9 times.
These were arranged in a grid with a quarter turn between each placement. The seams between the blocks were then covered with a striped band to make a faux sashing and borders.
I used some plastic stickers of poinsettias to create a little focal area and then applied a gold peel-off greeting to some of the brown and trimmed it out. The greeting is popped up on foam tape and I added a gold star to the center of each flower.
