Christmas Card With Faux Paper Quilting

I saw a video on how to make this paper quilt, and it's actually quite easy! You just line a bunch of paper strips on a piece of scrap paper vertically and glue down with your tape runner. Then take you cardstock with the strips and turn it so the strips are going horizontally and cut with your paper trimmer. Then place the strips on your card base and trim accordingly. I got a wee but overzealous and one of my sides isn't trimmed too evenly, but I will definitely make sure I don't do that on my next card. This is a great way to get rid of scraps, especially with all the massive amounts of Christmas cards we're probably all making.
