Quilt Inspired Card

This is a fun card making project. This card is inspired from a quilt pattern. Here is how to make it.
The finished size of your card will be 5x5.

Take a 5 x 10" piece of cardstock
Score at 5"  fold in half
1st mat size is 4 1/2x 4 1/2, sponge edges to soften the look
2nd mat size is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
3rd mat size is 3 x 3
Take 5 one inch squares in one pattern
Take 1 one inch square on another pattern
Place the 5 one inch squares on each corner and place one in the center
Cut the remaining  one inch square in half diagonal, then cut in half diagonal again
You will have 4 triangle squares
Place the 4 triangles in between the four corners
Take one matching button and thread with waxed linen and tie a knot
Place the button in center, adhere with either zots or other adhesive

There you have it, a very simple yet beautiful card. I made one in black, cream and grey tones and I also made one in a christmas pattern. Both pictures are shown.

The last thing you need is to have FUN!!! I would love to see your finished card so feel free to email me so I can what an amazing job you did.
