Hi everyone! I've been having fun with our newly released stamps
, and today I am here with a quilt block patriotic card. This particular quilt block pattern is called Star of Hope. :) Lucky for you and me, there are a lot of ideas on Pinterest for cards with quilt blocks, including patriotic designs, so there's plenty of inspiration out there.

I embossed the sentiment on the designer paper to help it stand out more clearly, but other than that, it was all just simple stamping and a little splattering of diluted ink with a paintbrush.
I kept trying to put ribbons and flowers on this card, but it just really wanted to be clean, simple, and graphic. So there you go! Sometimes it seems as though a card takes on a life of its own!
Here are the supplies I used:
