Birthday Card for a Quilter

One of my quilting buddies turned 90 years old this week.  She is an inspiration to everyone that knows her.  I wanted to make her a special card, something from the heart instead of the store.


I started off with stamping a paisley print on one side of the card, and gluing a printed paper to the left.  I have some lovely printed papers, and cut triangles from three prints for flying geese.


A quilt block was made using triangles in an hourglass block design, mounted on a darker square like a border on a quilt.


At the top is stamped “In the crazy quilt of life, I’m glad you’re in my block of friends”.  I added a little bow to the right.


Inside, I like to fancy up the Happy Birthday with a couple of quilt block stamps.


On the back is my custom made stamp, so she knows I made it.


Then, the envelope got a couple of stamps too.



I hope you had a Happy Birthday, Donna!!
