Card 2, Thank You So Very Much:

  • Stamps-Mint Motif (Very Square, Very Square Sentiments), Ink-Palette (Noir, Belle Rose, Landscape)

  • Felt-Art Craft (Ivory)
  • Brad-Basic Grey (Origins)
  • Spellbinders die templates (Classic Scalloped Borders Petite, Blossom, Big Scalloped Circles, Classic Circles)


One of the fun discoveries I have made with Very Square images, is the ability to cut images from the backgrounds and make your own embellishments. Each of the squares measures 1.75” x 1.75,” giving you some space to cut or punch shapes, on the small side, but as you can see in the cards above, perfect for card size!  I made a video to show you how to cut shapes from your images. I am calling it Placement Cutting, for lack of a better term!


With Card 2, here is another peek at the same technique. On this flower, I cut into the center, like on the video. It gives the flower some more dimension. Oh and just to note-the scalloped border is felt cut with a Borderabilities. Loving that! :)
