Create a Quilt Card From Paper Scraps

Hello there! Thank you for joining me today for a monochromatic card, expounding on Karin’s article, created from die-cutting squares.

I’ve had COVID for the past 10 days and this was all I could think of with a super clogged head. Quilt cards are easy to make, attractive, and have endless creative opportunities with colors and patterns.


You can use a punch or die-cuts of any size or shape depending upon your vision. I used a die-cut square with stitching to play off of the sewing theme of this project.

This card is an American A2 size of 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.

I cut basic white thick CS (card stock) to 4-1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5-1/2 to create a top-folding card. I cut a piece of light blue CS to 4 x 5-1/4 and ran that through an embossing folder for the texture and pattern, then adhered it to the card base.

I picked out my patterned paper and started to die-cut with a stitched square measuring 1 x 1 for 12 squares total.

I stamped my sentiment in navy blue ink with a red heart right under it for a pop of color. I die-cut the sentiment from a stitched circle die-cut that had a coordinating loop frame that was cut from another shade of blue CS and adhered these together.

For final assembly, I added 2 foam squares to the back of each square. To adhere them evenly, I measured 1/4″ up and over from the bottom left, top left, top right, and bottom left FIRST. Once I laid down these squares, the rest was easy to wing placement of the other 8 squares.

I added ribbon to the back of the sentiment and adhered this with foam squares to the card base.

I felt the ribbon embellishment was enough due to the busyness of the embossed card stock and multiple patterns in the paper.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and if you have any questions, please let me know. Have a great day!
