Let’s make a square card using the Special Someone Stamp Set! This little mouse is so cute, and he’s wanting to send someone a get well wish.
Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 4 1/4″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making your square card base.
Cut Whisper White Cardstock to 4″ X 4″, and emboss with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Glue this layer to your card base.
Use the largest Layering Squares Die (scalloped) to cut a square from Smoky Slate Cardstock.
Use the second largest Layering Squares Die (scalloped) to cut a square from Subtles 6X6 Designer Paper in So Saffron.
Stamp “This balloon is special…” in Memento Black Ink on the upper right corner of the DSP, and the balloon string in the middle of the DSP.
Glue the two scalloped squares together, and attach to the card front with Dimensionals.
Stamp the mouse in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, using the Stamparatus.
TIP: Carefully place his solid stamp on top of him (use your reading glasses), and color the stamp on the Stamparatus lid in Smoky Slate Ink. Bring the lid down the first time on a piece of scratch paper. Stamp the mouse the second time, which will give him a lighter color. This is how you can “stamp off” using the Stamparatus.
Stamp the balloon in Bumblebee Ink, and use the same method for coloring the balloon as above.
Use the mouse and balloon Special Day Dies for cutting, and place on Dimensionals.
To complete the sentiment, stamp “it’s filled with heal-ium” in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. Place the sentiment on Dimensionals, tucking it under the lower left corner.
Wasn’t it fun making a square card? This size is really nice, because it fits in our medium envelopes.
My inspiration was Freshly Made Sketches.
