Square cards - I love them!

Here's another 5x5 square card - I am loving this size card - it's so fun to create in square! I took this layout straight off of this Friend card by Amy Sheffer. If you are prepared to e completely blown off your feet, check out Amy' blog Pickled Paper Designs - she is amazing!

I started with a 5x10" base of Blush Blossom and added layers of Textured Whisper White and several papers from the SAB Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper. This SAB pack of paper is 16 sheets of 4 different double sided pattern papers and it's FREE with a $50 order from Stampin' Up! I stamped the flowers and leaves from SAB Botanical Blooms (also FREE!) in Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Certainly Celery. The brads along the side are Soft Subtle Brads. I stamped Congratulations, a sentiment from the SAB Congrats stamp set (FREE!) in Basic Gray ink and punched the end of it with the My Way Punch to create the banner. This banner is attached by a white Latte Button, threaded with Linen Thread and tied to a scrap of SAB Celery Twill Ribbon Bundle (FREE!) I distressed the edge of the Whisper White Textured cardstock with the Cutter Kit and paper pierced a line with the Mat Pack.

Here's a peek at the inside - I love sentiment sets and this SAB one is going to get a lot of use!

Stamps: SAB Botanical Blooms, SAB Congrats
Cardstock: Blush Blossom, Whisper White and Whisper White Textured, SAB Delicate Dots DSP
Ink: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Basic Gray
Accessories: SAB Ribbon Bundle, Cutter Kit, Mat Pack, Soft Subtles Brads, Latte Buttons, Linen Thread, My Way Punch
