CCMC237 – Vintage Verses

Yes!!!  It's Sale-A-Bration time and Vintage Verses is one of my FAVORITES!  I decided to use it for the Sketch Challenge today over on Create with Connie and Mary.  Come play along…don't be afraid, our Challenge Team has LOTS of great ideas using the sketch to give you inspiration!


That Mary…she loves square cards…lol!  So, instead of converting it to regular size, I went ahead and did mine up square, too!  I love the colorful patterns in the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP.  Now…second guessing myself, I would probably do this in Daffodil Delight instead of Pink Pirouette…but I wasn't going to re-do it. 



Here are the details!

  1. The base card is 4 1/4 x 8 1/2, folded in half to form the square.
  2. The Whisper White is 4 x 4.  I added a 1" x 4" of green dotted Designer Paper from S&S.  I also added the Melon Mambo 3/8 Striped Ribbon along the front and secured it in the back.
  3. I cut a 2 x 3 piece of Designer Paper, then cut 3/4" off one side and 1-1/2 on the other side to give me the 4 pieces.  (So in other words, 2 pieces of 3/4 x 1 1/2 and 2 pieces of 1 1/4 x 1 1/2")  Hope that makes sense.
  4. I stamped the greeting from Vintage Verses (SAB set) in Black Stazon on Pink Pirouette, then cut it with the Window Frame framelit.  I added a large Rhinestone jewel to the filigree.

Pretty birthday card?  I think so!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Thursday Challenge Team to see what they did with the sketch over on Create with Connie and Mary!

I have to say I really like square cards like Mary too! Your card is really sweet Connie – the colours are so soft and pretty and it's the first time I've seen the lovely ribbon you've used.

Such a soft & pretty card, especially with the sentiment stamped on pink! Perfect with the addition of one solo Rhinestone in the center!
