Cute Card Thursday is Square

Hello friends!  It’s “Hip to be Square”, right?!  That’s what the theme of this week’s new challenge is over at Cute Card Thursday!  So please hop on over and check out the inspiration and play along with us!  Here’s the card I’ve made for the challenge:


What better card to make than one for a crafty friend! 🙂   I’ve used a past Simon Says Stamp card kit from February 2018 for this one.  I thought that I would carry the “square” theme throughout the design. – It’s great to pull out past kits and have a play with them!

The stamp set is called SSS Crafty Friends and I’ve randomly stamped some of the images on a vanilla-colored cardstock and then cut out each one with a stitched square die cut.  I’ve also used the same die to cut out a square piece of decorative paper contained in the kit which also has a colorful square pattern on it.

For the paint pallet image as well as the tube of paint panels, I took some of the watercolor provided in the kit and added it for some color with a water brush.  I took some twine and wrapped it around the top left panel with the hearts and sentiment and then placed the bow over top.  I then added the scissors wood veneer over top which was also included in the kit.  The turquoise-colored cardstock base and squared layered panels also came from the kit as well.


Here’s an even closer look at the different squared panels.  You can better see the watercolor over the panels as well as the turquoise colored Nuvo Glitter Drops that I’ve added to the paint tube on the bottom panel.


Hope you’ve enjoyed my “SQUARE” card today!

Thanks so much for dropping in!  I’ll see you soon!

  2. What a fun card Vicki! I love all of the crafty stamped items and the gorgeous square design, the little scissors are so cute!

  3. Lovin your crafty card – especially the water color palette – I don’t often make square cards as I am a bit of a penny pincher and it cost “extra” to mail it. But this one is surely worth the extra.

    1. Well I have some great news for you! This is actually a 4.25″ square card and it fits perfectly in the regular A2 sized envelopes. You could even leave off the extra wood veneer to keep it flat! 🙂 Hope you will do a square card soon! Thanks for your comment!! HUGS
