Good morning. Welcome to the final day with Guest Designer Marge Robertson. We would like to thank Marge for sharing her great projects with us this week. To see more great projects be sure to visit Marge's blog.
For my final guest design spot I have a masculine 5 1/2" square card featuring Ornate Happiness Squares because when I saw these stamps, that's what first came to mind. Always needing ideas for masculine cards, I LOVE the mixing/matching possibilities with the fabulous sentiments and frames with this set and its coordinating Spellbinders' dies.
AND they also work fabulously for the ladies too, so see my feminine version below!
Step 1: Starting with a 5 1/2" square cream card, attach a 5 1/4" square of DP to your card front.
Step 2: Die cut Grand Squares die #1 from blue DP and die cut green DP with largest Ornate Squares die (using waxed paper between die & DP for easier removal); attach decorative square onto blue square;
Step 3: Cut Ornate Square die and stamp frame in brown ink; stamp frame again on cream scrap and stamp sentiment in green ink. Ink edges of non-sentiment frame die cut with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and emboss die cut to create blue edging. Die cut sentiment with Classic Squares Small #3 die and add to frame with thin foam tape;
Step 4: Using thick foam tape, center your sentiment in the middle of your blue/decorative green Ornate Square from Step 2;
Step 5: Decorate your Ornate square and sentiment with metal 'dots' and thread a piece of green (or natural) jute through a button, add another metal dot & tie around the top (or side) edge of your card;
Step 6: For inside greeting die cut the middle-sized square from Ornate Squares (DP) and the #2 & #3 dies from Marvelous Squares (blue/green solids). Using the Marvelous Squares #2 die, stamp sentiment in brown and finish it off with the decorative edges only hand cut from the #3 die.
Step 7: For fun, cut a piece of coordinating DP 3" wide and trim by lining up edges to flap; tape just under gummed edge inside envelope flap.
