I absolutely love how these two cards turned out for my All Squared Away class, mostly because of the color combinations. Supplies for both of these cards will be included in the All Squared Away LIVE Class Kit.
Background Basics—This softer color version begins with a card base in Soft Sea Foam. I adhered a 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" piece of Pattern Party Designer Series Paper to the front for a touch of black.
Stamped Squares—I stamped one of the All Squared Away images in Soft Sea Foam ink at the top left of a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Basic White. I added a second image in Balmy Blue at the bottom middle of the piece. After adhering it onto a 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of Balmy Blue cardstock, I tied some Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the layers into a double-knot. It's all mounted onto the card base with SEAL Adhesive.
Focal Point—I stamped a third square image in Pool Party onto a 1-7/8" x 1-7/8" square of Basic White. Then, I cut a Basic White Floral Square die-cuts and adhered it to the stamped square with Liquid Multipurpose Glue. It's popped up onto the card front with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I colored four Basic Rhinestone Jewels with the Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blends Marker and added it them to the flower centers of the Floral Square die-cut I select!
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the first part of the All Squared Away sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 2" x 1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam and popped it up under the focal point.
The second part of the sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card, a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White. I also stamped the same three images from the front of the card over the sentiment in the same colors stamped-off one time.
Two Cool—For the second card, I used brighter blues and greens, along with a focal point in black. The card base is Coastal Cabana this time, decorated with the same DSP.
The background is stamped with squares in Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue, then layered onto a Basic Black mat. I finished this layer with Black & White Gingham Ribbon.
Focal Point—I stamped a focal point square in Granny Apple Green and die-cut a Floral Square in Basic Black for the overlay this time. Wow…that really pops! I added Basic Rhinestones colored with Basic Black around the squares to finish.
Sweet Sentiment—The front sentiment is stamped onto Coastal Cabana.
The inside of the card has a cool border created with the same squares and colors as on the front. How fun!
