8 Pointed Star Quilt Block Card

I decided to make a quilt block card and had so much fun with it. I am also a quilter so doing a card this way was really fun. I am going to be making more in different designs. How many of you are quilters too?

On this sample I used the designer paper I had left over from yesterday's project. Very Vanilla Card stock and Mellow Moss and lastly Bravo Burgundy. Choc. Chip SU Marker.

You also need the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 Punches

This card is 5x5 for the main card.

Punch out 5 Bravo Burgundy squares with the 1 3/8 punch

Punch out 2 Mellow Moss squares with the 1 1/4 punch, 3 of the designer paper with the same punch.

Layer one of the designer paper squares on the BB square. And do the same with 2 more. You will cut 2 of them on the diagonal.

Layer the MM on the BB on the remaining 2. Cut these in half on the diagonal also.

Layer these as shown in my sample.

Very Vanilla cut at 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.
1st Row: Now with one of your 2 pointed pieces mount that on the VV at 1 3/8 in from the top side.

2nd Row do the same only on the edge of the card stock. Then add your center piece and your other 2 pointed piece to that. See my sample for placement.

3rd row do the same as the 1st.

Cut MM at 4 3/4 x 4 3/4

Mount your VV Quilt Piece to the MM, being careful to get it even all around. Mount this to the BB main card.

With your Choc. Chip marker, add dashed lines for stitching on quilt pieces as show in the sample. I tried to do mine at about 1/8 inch.

And Walla you have a Quilt Card finished.
Hope you have enjoyed today's project and if you make one please share with me.

What a pretty card, Debby! I'm not a quilter, but I have a friend who is and I think she would love a gift set of "quilted" cards. :) Thank you for sharing.

Debby.....I love it! Thanks so much for posting (and I'm looking forward to more of your creations) because I have just gotten into the square card "thing" and these will make wonderful square cards. I'm a quilter who really is enjoying applique work right now, BUT I may have to go back to doing some piecing, because your designs are inspiring me. Crating is such a joy.............
