Birthday Quilt

Another card from my Splitcoast Dirty Dozen time. Each DD month has a theme. If you are a member of the Fan Club, you can view more details about this card and its relation to the challenge here.

Birthday Quilt | by karen @ carefree creations

So today is my mom’s birthday, so I thought it would be cool to post a birthday card. This isn’t the one I sent my mom, but still gives me an opportunity to say “Happy Birthday, Mom!”

I’m sorry I don’t have a link to this paper folding technique. I know I saw it somewhere, but I couldn’t find a card or tutorial. I punched a bunch of circles from pattern paper, scored a square on the inside and folded the edges in.

I placed the folded circles in the diamonds of the embossed background.

Thanks for taking a peek!
