MFT Quilt Square Cover Up Christmas poinsettia card

The time has come for another Christmas Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge, and this time our fun twist is 'sequins'. You can actually enter any kind of Christmas card but it can be fun to challenge yourself and play with our twist!

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.


In my ever ready wish to stretch my supplies, I used a quilt die this time that reminds me of a poinsettia!

 1) Put double sided sticky film on the front of some white card then cut it into a 4-inch square before removing the protective sheet.

2) Die cut the MFT Quilt Square Cover up die from white card and then again from red card. The leftover pieces from can be made into another card. Adhere the outside frame of the quilt die cut onto the sticky card, and then stick all the stitched pieces into place as shown.

3) Mat the quilted piece onto some silver mirror card and a stitched red square.

4) Stamp the sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments at the bottom of the card in red ink, then raise the quilted panel onto the base card using fun foam.

5) Die cut a couple of Papertrey Ink Tiny Tags and stamp a small sentiment on the top one before tying them together with baker's twine. Glue them to the top corner of the card.

6) Finish off by adding a red sequin to the centre of the quilt. I didn't have a red one, so I coloured it with an alcohol pen - not an exact match, but it will do!

As usual, you can see lots of inspiration over on the Happy Little Stampers Blog, and if you enter, it could be you as our prize winner this month!

This is wonderful, Carol. Quilring was my craft du jour a long time ago. I used to take classes and make lots of quilted things with my mother. Quilted things always bring a smile to my face when I think abou that. I love all the red and white, the tiny tag, and that wonderful scalloped bottom.

Ros Crawford said...

It's beautiful Carol and certainly looks like a poinsettia! I hope you are enjoying the cooler temperatures?

Nora Noll said...

I LOVE this simple quilt card done in red & white, and that precious pair of tags is just darling with the little cut-out heart! Beautiful card!

Bobby said...

I just might have to CASE this, Carol. I am a quilter and have a similar die. I love the little tags you added at the top.

Oh, the colors are so elegant! I love stitched patchwork, such a simple pattern and at the same time so elegant.

Greta said...

Oh wow--I adore this card! I've never even cut the one PTI quilt die I have, but you've inspired me!

Suze said...
