Grab some paper and let's get quilting card making! 1. Cut seven .75x5" strips of paper. I used Up, Up and Away HPoPs (Half Pound of Papers) with Love Ink Light and Dark Pink.

Apply adhesive to a scrap of text weight paper. Attach the strips side by side onto the text weight paper.

Arrange the strips and adhere at an angle, following the quilt template, onto another piece of text weight paper.
