    Greetings!

    I got sidetraced from working on a quilt top . . . decided to experiment with an idea for greeting cards (thinking of Christmas). I just used some scrap (non-Christmas) fabric and the recently-discussed technique for the crazy stars (or whatever it was called) for stacking, cutting and shuffling (didn't do a star pattern), and ended up with these. Will probably use them for BD or Easter cards.

    Then added a fussy-cut butterfly

    Maybe a tute? I like making my own cards but it's gone by the wayside since I started quilting, and knitting....

    I fell in love with making greeting cards, recently. I am curious what you used to attach the crazy quilting pieces to the card stock?

    Are they sewn to the card or glued down? They look great!
