Quilt Cards

Wow, I don't remember the last time I made a card with no coloring on it, much less posted a card with no coloring. I know it has been a very long time! We have a friend that will be celebrating her 70th birthday this weekend. Judy, Samantha and Jenna will be making her dinner and I will be making her a German Chocolate Cake. That cake happens to be my Grandmother's specialty so I have never made one before. Kip so valiantly offered to be the taste tester and suggested that I make a practice one today. I have been baking long enough to be confident that it will turn out the way I want it so he will have to wait until the party to taste my cake. 

Our birthday girl is an avid quilter. I knew I wanted to make her a set of notecards and that they had to be quilting related. Clear Dollar Stamps has a designer die set called Build a Quilt, and there is a coordinating stamps set to go with it. When I saw this set, I knew it would be perfect for this gift set. There are only 7 patterns here, but I have made a set of twelve cards, but I duplicated some of the designs. I am not sure how I am going to package them yet, I have a couple of ideas in mind and I will post a picture of that when I get that part completed. 

Here are the rest of the notecard designs in my gift set:

I am also entering this in the Clear Dollar Stamps Clearly Inspired Challenge.

these cards are so neat, Gina! love the stitching on them. have fun with the cake. too funny that your hubs is being the taste tester. ;)

I like your Sweet Pea card on the earlier post, too. I have several of their stamps that I won but don't really suit me. please let me know if you would like them and I'll pop them in the mail to you. would much rather they get some use than just sit here and dust gather....

enjoy your weekend! :) hugs!

A lot of work you put into these. I love them and the colors are perfect. I thought you had sewed them until I blew it up, but I did see that you used a Clear Dollar stamp set.
She will love these.
