Decorative Paper - Set 1
I've always loved these rounded squares and now that I have a Creative Memories punch which makes the sizes perfect it makes it a joy to make these cards. I punched the smaller 1.25" squares from mauve/turquoise decorative paper. I punched the larger 1.5" squares from turquoise card stock. These all had 2 corners rounded with a punch. The decorative ones were adhered to the solids tightly aligning one of the corners. I color printed the large greeting on white in a coordinating color. The white greeting layer was adhered to the card front. The 4 squares were then adhered with the tight corners all aligned to the center of the cross. It gives the effect of a graphic flower.
Here's another using the same decorative paper and the same squares. This time I left the square corners. I mounted the decorative ones onto turquoise solid. These were then adhered to a 3.25" square of textured white card stock. The square was then adhered to the card front leaving about the same margin top and bottom. I stamped the greeting with one of the stamps from the Good Greetings Stamp set in Tempting Turquoise. I flagged the ends with the corner of the square punch as it was handy. Celebrate allows the card to be used for birthdays, anniversary, graduation, or any other celebration.
