It's Hip to Be Square!

I've got two square cards to share with you today - when I make these super-embellished cards, I also make a little box for giving. No worries about squishing that way! The Paper Players are looking for square cards this week if you'd like to play along. Each card measures 5.25" square.


Supplies: Dreamweavers Crackle Embossing paste; Lil Inkers fringed flower die; Prima leaves; AC Thickers '40'; distress inks for watercolouring - dusty concord, seedless preserves, mowed lawn, broken china, peacock feathers; all other items from stash


I just coated a piece of paper with a layer of crackle paste using my fingers, and when it was dry watercoloured it. Super simple!


Supplies: blue flowers quilled by me; gem swirl & ribbon flower from Dollarama


The rhinestones & ribbon flower were a single-piece embellishment I got at the dollar store. A few snips and repositioning and it was perfect to pop up this card. 


xoxo,
Jessi
