Todays blog post is all about squares. I love making square cards so today I thought I would show you 3 different sized square cards, all of which incorporate more squares in their design. This first card has quite a lot going on. I cut out a white square piece slightly smaller than the card base and them stamped my images. I also used my scoring board to score some lines. I then cut out my 3 squares using the dies from the All Squared Away set and mounted them onto some of the DSP from the Artistically composed suite. The stamps that I used are also from this suite. I then found some twine in my stash that I am pretty sure has retired. I mounted them onto dimensioals and stuck them onto the card and finished it with some in colour gems
Here’s a cloe up of some of the squares
This next car is by far the easiest of the three. I stamped an image from the Blessings of Home bundle and then coloured it in. I then cut the image into equal squares and reassembled it on the card front – very simple and very quick but quite effective too.
This final card definitely took the longest but I am so happy with it! I used the Hand Penned Petals stamp set and stamped the larger image off the sides of the first square mount for the card. I then stamped the second image onto the middle of a smaller mount. I then coloured them in using my blender pens. I cue a piece of pink cardstock and put some retired ribbon on it. I then suck that to the piece I had stamped off the corners. I used my Playful Alphabet dies to cut out the get well soon anf then stamped the sentiment beneath it.
I punched out some tiny butterflies and added them with some diamantes which I coloured with my pens to match.
I didn’t do the best job of cutting the ribbon but I have fixed it now. I love the dimension of this card and how the alphabet spells out the greeting, I often forget I can use them for that.
