I stan laurafadora (in a good way!) :-)
and when I saw THIS stunning card, I wanted to CASE it.
Here's my attempt...
To make the 'quilt' I covered a piece of card with small strips of dp then cut it into two 2" x 2" squares.
The squares were then cut into 2 triangles,
and then these triangles were each cut into 2,
giving you 8 pieces in total.
Then you simply arrange the pieces into your 'quilt' design.
(Laura has a great step by step video to follow).
I used a textured cardstock, for added interest,
and some glitter paper for a touch of bling.
