Create a Good Luck Shades of Green Quilt Card for St. Patrick's Day with your Stampin' Up! Patterned Papers.

I love quilts both to sew, and make as a card. So I thought this card quilt might be fun to try for St. Patrick's Day today. It all starts with cutting or punching 1 1/4" squares. Prepare a variety in various shades of green paper that you have in your stash.

Then select one of the shades as your card base color. Mine is Old Olive. Then cut a Basic Black layer 4" x 5 1/4". Next will be the Basic White layer you'll make your paper quilt on 3 3/4" x 5".

I have a black mat on my craft desk that has a 45 degree diagonal line on it, so I lined up my Basic White piece and drew a light pencil line with a ruler from the lower left corner to wherever it stopped on the upper right side. Having the line there helped me line up my squares. 

At first I was going to put them edge to edge, but decided against that when I saw I would end up with tiny bits at the outer edges and I didn't like that. The squares are spaced a little less than 1/8" apart. When you get done laying out your colors the way they look good to you, then start adhering them to the Basic White. You will have squares that hang over the edge and need to be trimmed off with paper snips.

Once the quilt layer is done, adhere to the Basic Black layer. Tie the Black and White Gingham ribbon around the layers. Affix the bow with a glue dot to hold in place.

I stamped the 1/2" strip of Basic White with the "good luck" from the retired Special Moments stamp set. I had used a 1 1/4" square punch for my quilt squares so that is how I got the tag to fit precisely in the center square raised up on mini dimensionals. I added two retired Holiday Rhinestone Jewels in the green color at the point end of the tag.

Give this quilt design a try and it will soon be one of your favorites to make over and over again! Let me know if I can be of any help to you!
