Etcetera Squares

Good morning, Friends! Are you ready for a great weekend? It should be another quiet one for us. Nick was supposed to be playing in a 3v3 soccer tournament but it got cancelled so that leaves it open for doing whatever! I need to get some stamping done and I have a few sewing projects to finish.

Today's card was inspired by one I saw in a stamp store quite a while ago. I had taken a picture of it so I could recreate it. Of course I had to change it all up and use Stampin' Up! products but the layout is pretty much the same. Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Baked Brown Sugar
  • Layer of Baked Brown Sugar
  • On layer stamp images from Gorgeous Grunge in Baked Brown Sugar (I did stamp off once before stamping onto card stock) and sponge with Baked Brown Sugar
  • Stamp greeting from Four You in Night of Navy then adhere layer to card base
  • Cut three squares from Etcetera designer paper, round opposite corners and sponge with Baked Brown Sugar
  • Pop up two squares onto card
  • With the third square, tie a piece of linen thread around it (I wrapped mine around three times) and then pop up onto card
There you have it! Pretty simple and a fun way to show off the designer paper! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Four You, Gorgeous Grunge; Paper- Baked Brown Sugar, Etcetera designer paper; Ink- Baked Brown Sugar, Night of Navy; Accessories- linen thread, sponge, dimensionals
