In my stamping group, there was a challenge to make a quilt square card, and this is what I came up with.

I used a 1.25 inch square punch on some scraps of paper and then arranged them how it looked like it should from other examples of this style. It really was pretty easy to do. Then I placed my square over a die cut square of ivory card and embossed the entire thing with a folder I thought might look a bit like a stitching pattern.
I did rub a little distress ink over top of the embossing just to cover any areas that might have looked a bit white. Boy, oh boy! I really enjoy fun ways to use up scraps! The result definitely made me smile, too.
The sewing notions were stamped and fussy cut from more scraps. Fun!
