I LOVE this week's Compose a Card Challenge that Becky issued! So, I decided to play along! She said that we could use any colors that we wanted and so I chose some of my favorite patterned paper and started cutting.
The card base is 5 x 5. It's been a while since I've made a square card and it sure is fun to work with! The square punches are suppose to be 1 1/4" and mine are just a tad larger than that (that was what size of punch I had and it is so much easier than cutting each square out).
I also pulled out my sewing machine and made a spot for it in my crafting area. I love to use it but since it's been in the storage closet, I seldom pull it out. Well, now it is easily accessible and I can use it whenever I'd like. I love how stitching looks on cards! From this angle, you can also see the dimension. I raised up the base, the ivory label and the umbrella all with 1/16" pop dots so each layer isn't raised very much to add a lot of bulk.
Hopefully I'll get a chance to play along with another challenge sometime soon. It was a lot of fun!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a very blessed day!
