Grandparents Day

Hello again!  This week the SweetSassyDiva Design team has created projects in honor of Grandparents day! I decided to make a card that resembled a quilt for my Grandma Rose! She makes the most amazing quilts I have ever seen. I want to have everyone that she makes but understand I have to share with the rest of my family!........sigh........ well on to my card!

I cut nine 1.5 inch squares from the Mango Frost DCWV stack and 4.75 inch square of matching orange pattern paper.

I adhered the squares to the yellow pattern paper in a simple quilt pattern.

I then added the card front to a pink square cut at 5 inches.

Here is the card base for the easel card. It measures 5inches by 10 inches. I score it at 5 inches and 7.5 inches.
I added the yellow pattern paper to the card base and added a sentiment from Pink By Design. The Butterflies are from Kate's ABC's. Also added some white faux stitching!
Here is a side view of the card!

I hope you like my card! Don't forget to check back this week and see what the rest of the Design team has created for more inspiration!

What a sweet idea for a Happy Grandparents Day card! I wish I'd thought of that years ago, as I, too, had several quilts from my great-grandmother. They've all been shared with my kids, but what fun that would have been when my kids were young. Hmmm, maybe they could send me pictures and I could do this with my grandkids. Thanks again! :)
