Square Cards

If you are looking for the Parade Your Crafts DT project, go HERE

Happy Saturday.  I have been busy creating some projects for some on going challenges and I wanted to share with you.

How you you feel about square cards.  I don't normally make cards in this shape because they are cost more to mail but I do like how they look.  I guess if you are going to include the card in a package then who cares about the mailing issue.

This card I made using my Craft's Meow stamps.   I added a chipboard Thank you sticker to the middle for the flower.  This card measures 4.5 x 4.5.  Why the half inch?  well it just fit the Spellbinders frame better.

While on my travels through the web I discovered a new challenge blog.  It is Runway Inspired Challenge.  This is where your inspiration comes from a runway photo.  Seems fun and I choose to participate.

Here is the inspiration photo.

Now I don't think I would be wearing this dress.  There is too much going on up top and I think the fabric looks like a chair my Grandmother owned.  But, the pattern can be inspiring.  

Here is my card

This time I used my Spellbinders die to cut the card into the square.  I like the effect.  
Maybe I  will be making more square cards in the future.  

Thanks for checking in.
