Default Quilted Card lessons

I will be walking you thru making a quilted card and paper buttons for the "quilt", step by step. To follow along you will need:

small square background stamp -preferable with a repeat pattern but not required
ink pad that is multi-colored
tracing wheel, distressing wheel or needle for stitching
Small circle punch or Spellbinder die
Embossing folder - optional but sure adds to the "fabric texture" effect
Needle or other item to make buttonholes with
Gel medium, decoupage glue or other to give shine appearance to your button
foam dots/tape
cardstock for base and matting
adhesive

Now for a preview:

stay tuned for the next lesson

Default Step one

You need to determine how many rows across and down you want to stamp and then multiply your stamp dimensions by that number. Cut white cardstock slighly larger than those dimensions. For example, if I want a 4 x 4 grid and are using a 1 inch square stamp then your CS needs to be larger than 4 inches square.

Btw, type of paper/ CS you use is up to your discretion. I always encourage stampers to make a project their own. Keep in mind the use of snot will add green to your project and may clash with some colors.

don't forget to deduct matting from your total measurements
