Obviously I liked Susan30's idea very much. I've cased it to give to a friend who is buying a 100+ year old quilt at Christmas from her inlaws who are selling it because of financial difficulties, so that the quilt doesn't leave the family. She wants to send them the money in a special card. She did not want a Christmas color/themed card, hence the country colors.
I did do some paper piercing to mimic stitching on the red squares.

zoo4p, you punch out 4 solids, and 4 white to stamp on using a square punch. Your layer behind your squares should be slightly larger than your 4 solids when you lay them out so that their sides are all touching to make a solid square. Then you layer them in a circle (like when you close a cardboard box's flaps by overlapping them). Then glue them in place. I punched them and inserted eyelets through the flower centers once the 8 squares were glued together. PM me if you need more information.
