Split Rail Quilt Card Tea Party Paper

My friend Janice was the recipient of this card on August 7. That is her birthday and she likes quilts. This was such a fun card to make. Piecing was just like a fabric quilt except 1/100th of the time. I simply cut pieces of coordinating paper 1 1/4" long by 1/2" wide and used two way glue. Glue stick works equally as well. If you look closely you can see three pieces go one way and three go the other way. Always keep the same pattern of laying down the paper the same. In this case the green, then the amethyst, then the flower. I used copy paper as my base as not to get it too think and trimmed the excess off the edges. When it was dry I ran it through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper ef. Added the sentiment. That's it. Any questions let me know. Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.
