Are You A Square?

Hello everyone!!!  I have such great news to share.

I received AAA Cards CAS Honors today for my Love you watercolor card.  Just in case you missed it here it is.

Watercolor Love you

I am so grateful to the lovely women who voted for me.  This really made my day!! Such a nice way to start the week.

I’m back again with AAA Cards Game #11 Enjoy challenge and Virginia’s View Challenge #5 Die Cut this week.

 

AAA Card Games #11 is looking for a “window box pattern”, 4 up squares, 4 up matching embellishments, 4 up holes you name it.

Virginia’s View Challenge #5 Die Cut are looking for cards that contain die cuts.

I decided to have one large square with 4 up squares with 4 smaller squares attached at the center.  Confused, don’t be.

Take a look at my card:

Doesn’t the smaller squares look like leaves? Take a closer look.

I die cut 8 squares (4 big ones and 4 one size smaller) with Stampin’ up!’s Square Collection Framelits Die and my Big Shot out of Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods pattern paper.

I used my We R Memory Keepers Cropadile Corner Chomper to round the corners of two corners on each square.

I used my Stampin’ Up! 1″ circle punch and my 3/4″ circle punch to create the circle in one of the squares, the circle behind the button and the white circle behind the orange square.

I used Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks Stamp set for the sentiment and the heart with Stampin’ Up! chocolate chip ink pad.

I added a retired Stampin’ Up! button and linen thread in the center.

What do you think?
