Hi everyone! I'm really into square cards lately. I love the different shape, it mixes things up a bit and presents a new challenge for me to dream up new layouts! I have a stash of 5.5 x 5.5 envelopes on hand so I've been making 5 x 5 cards. This size card also fits perfectly in a 6 x 9 bubble envelope.
As for today's card, I was in the mood for a fall card so I printed the Quirky Owl digital stamp by Doodle Pantry. I paired it with an autumn sentiment from the Autumn Critters digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps I had sitting on my craft table.
My card base is Dark Brown layered with White Cardstock then Fall Stripe and Fall Festival Mini Dots patterned paper stitched around the edges. I wrapped Dark Brown Grosgrain Ribbon around the card and tied the ends down on the back side. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. Next I die cut and embossed the image using Standard Circles Large Nestabilities and layered it on Dark Brown die cut using the Classic Scalloped Circles Large Nestabilities.
The sentiment was printed on White Cardstock and punched out using the Word Window Punch. To embellish the card I added a red and green leaf and finished them off at the stems with a knot tied from Dark Brown Grosgrain Ribbon. I also added a Dark Brown button threaded with DMC White in each of the botton corners of the card base.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
