Square of Squares

Hi there

I'm back again today with another card which fits a few challenges.

So, without further ado, here it is...

I stamped each piece of coloured cardstock with the same stamp using VersaMark ink.  I then cut these out with a small square die.  I used a larger die from the same set to emboss the base card, simply running it through my Big Shot using the rubber mats instead of the cutting plate.  The tiles were then adhered inside the embossed square and I added a simple sentiment to finish.  Easy peasy :)

Without realising, after I'd made this card a bell was ringing in my mind that I'd seen something similar before!  It seems I've CASEd one of Stephanie Wincott's cards featured in this post a year ago...I even used the same stamp!  Thanks for the inspiration Stephanie, my brain must store up these images somewhere :D

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Leafy Accents and Many Messages
  • Ink: VersaMark and Versafine in Onyx Black
  • Dies: Xcut - Nested Squares
  • Cardstock: Papermania Premium Textured Cardstock; base card from stash
