Card Making Monday # 41 - American Quilt

Welcome to a new Card Making Monday post.

What can be more American that quilting?! Ok, ok after apple pie and basballl. lol With July 4th fast approacing I chose to pull out my red, white and blue scraps and create a quilted patterned for this card.
 This allows for lots of detail without the bulk frowned upon in the mailroom. In addition I kept the ribbon knots relatively flat so no big bumps when in the envelope.

Here's my peice of Americana with my American Patriotic card...what ya think?

Here's a closeup of  the zig zag stitching I used for the quilt. You can find tips and strategies on how to add stitching to your cards here. You can also find more tutorials on my tutorial tab here. I kept the sentiment and other embellishments simple so that the stitching could take front and center.

This card will make it's way to Operation Write Home. If you want to know more click on the badge located on the right of my blog.
