Quilted Bunting...

All in all - a pretty quick card... I used a 1" punch to punch out the squares from Basic Grey DP, mounted them on a black panel in a quilt pattern and centered the panel on my card front.  Next was to use a larger square punch, cut each square in half and cut the V in the bottom.  The top was scored about 1/4 inch so I could easily fold the pennants over and tape to the black embroidery thread.  Two holes were punched in each corner of the base card front, the thread was sewn through and then knotted on the front.  The sentiment is Hero Arts - Operation Write Home collection.
The inside is shown at the right.
