I decided to think outside-the-box today by creating a square card. (Did you see what I did there?) I’ve been going through my Designer Series Paper listed on the Stampin Up! Retiring List to make room for new, and the beautiful colors and impressionistic style of my selection from the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper called to me. The blues and greens in this paper combined with the Island Indigo card base look fantastic!
The Delicate White Doily helps to highlight the tag and Detailed Dragonflies, and the Silver Metallic Thread adds more depth and a little shine to the card. I’ll be posting a video soon on how I created the coordinating envelope. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel HERE so you don’t miss an episode.
The card has a lot of elements but is actually very simple and quick to put it together. Here is my video tutorial:
To create the card base I cut an 8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Island Indigo card stock, scored it at 4-1/4″ then folded it in half. The Designer Series Paper is cut at 4″ x 4″ which means you can make nine of these cards out of one 12″ x 12″ piece of paper! The “Congrats” tag is stamped onto a piece of 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Whisper White card stock and the dragonflies are cut from a piece of 4-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Island Indigo card stock. I cut a piece of 4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock for the card insert.
