As soon as I saw this week's challenge over at Simplicity's blog, I knew exactly which stamp I would use. It is my current favorite which I have used on several cards. The challenge was to make a square one layer card using an outline stamp.
This image is a fairly new one from Hero Arts...it is the wood mount one you can get at Michael's, which is slightly smaller than the clear set. I find the wood mount one is scaled porportionally better for A2 cards. Used my copics to color, and the image is from Amuse.
In a recent post, Susan at Simplicity talked about envelopes and how she uses common rectangular envelopes for her square cards...using the smaller dimension (minus 1/4") of the envelope rectangle as the square dimension of her card. What a "DUH" moment for me! That is brilliant! I like the look of square cards, but I don't like the additional postage stamp price of mailing them. So, this card is 4-1/4" square and I will mail it in an A2 (4-1/2" x 5-3/4") envelope. Problem solved! Thanks, Susan!
Thanks for peeking!
