Get Well Quilt


Did you all happen to see this week's tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers on Quilt Cards by Jenna Barber? If not then you seriously have to check it out! Long before I started paper crafting, I was a quilter. I got into paper crafting for the instant gratification of my projects, so this kind of card is right up my alley! I seriously squealed when I saw it. I mean, who woulda thunk it? :D

As I was creating my "star of the west" paper quilt block I was thinking of sentiments to add to my card. The "Get well soon" sentiment is from the JustRite Fancy Tags Cling set from Stamper's Dream and worked out perfectly for the card. I know that when I'm feeling sick, I'm usually in bed curled up with a quilt so, I just knew that these two had to be paired together.





Because of the genius idea of the Quilt Card, I can see a set of these babies in the future for me! This is the ideal backdrop for a home spun look and a warm and fuzzy card to feature sentiments of all kinds. Hmmm, the wheels are spinning in my head....

Thank you so much Jenna, for the fabby tutorial! You can bet to be seeing some more of these on my blog :D

Gorgeous! I saw this on SCS and had to pop on over for all the details. I really like that you added the stitching and the distressing ink. I too am still a quilter at heart, but with 3 kiddos I really like that I can finish a card in minutes vs. days (weeks/months!) for a quilt.
