IO Challenge- Square Cards


Greetings friends.  Today's challenge is all about square cards.  I also wanted to share something I have been playing with and that is creating scenes using some of the patterned background stamps I have. 

For this card, started with the Impression Obsession Tapestry Background F13459 and inked it with some Colorbox Chalk Azurite and Versafine Majestic Blue ink to create a sky and ocean area on the stamp.  I then stamped it onto a white piece of cardstock and added one of the boats from the Impression Obsession Sailboats DIE189-C set.

To finish the card, I added a border from the Impression Obsession Basic Borders 1 set (CL507) and the Sunshiny Day sentiment (B5451) in the same Majestic Blue ink.

Here is a close up of the tapestry background used to create the sky and ocean:


Don't forget!  Square cards cost extra to mail so either add more postage or use a rectangular envelope.

What a great card, Laura! I particularly like how you've partially stamped the "Tapestry" background to create your sea and sky - clever and SO effective!

Such a great idea, Laura, with the background stamp! Filing that away for future reference!
