Are You Tired of Red Cards Yet?

By | 02/11/2013

I just needed a blue card today.  I couldn’t resist creating something that wasn’t red and white!  I also love the look of the 4 squares each with two sides rounded.  I think that is one of my favorite card layouts.  I pinned that layout design last winter and I’ve made at least 3 versions of that card since.  Here is my take on that layout today:

4squarelayoutHow pretty is this?!  Love it!  I just couldn’t face another red card.  I feel like I’ve been making red and white cards since mid-January!!!  I’m also over the heart thing.  The next heart I see better be filled with chocolates.  I’m not kidding!

Today’s card is made with my favorite color:  Midnight Muse.  I keep making cards that are Midnight Muse and Whisper White.  I know!  It’s my favorite combination.  Sort of like a comfort food, only instead they are my comfort colors to craft with.

Papers:  Midnight Muse (cut 4 x 5-1/4), Whisper White (The card base is 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2″.  The white mat is cut at 3-3/4 x 5″.  I cut this into 2 pieces so that one was 3-3/4 x 3-3/4″.  I rounded two corners of the bottom piece and stamped the sentiment.

Ink:  Midnight Muse

Stamp Sets:  Perfectly Penned (#122892) and Flowering Flourishes (#126367)

Accessories:  Rhinestones, corner rounder, Stampin’ Trimmer.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Stamp the largest flourish several times on the white square.
  • Cut the white square into 4 pieces. (Cut the square in half at 1-7/8″ twice to get the small squares.)
  • Be careful to place the squares down as you cut them apart so that you can match the pattern.
  • Round opposite corners on each square.  Be careful not to round the center corners.
  • Add rhinestones to the flower centers and to the center of the squares.
