I started playing immediately and came up with 2 cards today.
This one uses papers from various October Afternoon pads, cut into 1" strips, and then pieced together to form this pattern. One of the reasons I enjoyed quilting so much was putting together fabrics that looked well together, and the same holds true for this medium as well! I started with the little floral piece, and pulled papers that went with it This tiny sentiment from an old Hero Arts SparkleClear set is perfect, and I added some of my favorite stamped flowers, centered with a glittery heart sticker to go along with the sentiment, and some die-cut leaves. After piecing my little quilt and before attaching it to my card base and adding the embellishments, I ran it through a Darice embossing folder called Simple Interlock to give it that dimpled look that quilting gives.
My next card was much simpler, utilizing a designer paper from Jillibean Soup. I found cardstock to frame it up and then embossed the whole thing with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Houndstooth. Again, the sentiment is Hero Arts and seems appropriate for a quilt card. Those little stars are stickers from an Oh Deer Me Kit that I won from Jennifer McGuire's blog last year.
