Faux quilt cards are a great way to showcase beautiful Designer Series Papers (DSPs). For these cards, I mostly used Lovely Linen.



This first one was inspired by Bobby of Bits & Pieces Design Blog. To make it easier to line up the DSP blocks, I cut a Basic White cardstock panel that was slightly smaller than the cardbase and started by aligning the Designer Series Paper patterns to it at the corners first, before filling in the remaining spaces. Then, the entire panel was adhered to the cardbase. The sentiment from Flowering Tulips fits perfectly in one of the horizontal rectangles.


Measurements:

-Basic White Thick cardstock

  • 8-1/2” (W) x 5-1/2” (H), scored at 4-1/4” along the long side

-Basic White cardstock

  • 4" (W) x 5-1/4" (H)

-Lovely Linen Designer Series Paper, various patterns

  • TWO Squares: 1-1/4” (W) x 1-1/4” (H)

  • THREE Vertical rectangles: 1-1/4” (W) x 2-1/2” (H)

  • TWO Horizontal rectangles: 2-5/8” (W) x 1-1/4” (H)


Here’s another layout that leaves room at the bottom for a sentiment:



Measurements:

This one includes stamped stitches, and I pierced small holes to add authenticity.



I can’t wait to make more of these!
