Birthday Squares

Welcome to Wednesday - when a new sketch debuts at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our hostess is Cindy Hall, who frequently blows me away with the details in her gorgeous cards.


As soon as I saw those squares, I thought of my Quadrangle Frames dies by SSS.


I went with a cool color scheme - Sea Glass, Audrey Blue, Fog, Smoke, White and Black.  This card was simple to make.  I laid a strip of Sea Glass cardstock onto a white card base, then popped up the two white panels using foam tape, letting the Sea Glass peek through. The frames were cut from scrap cardstock and adhered using spray adhesive.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Label Love, cut it out and adhered it to the card base.  No embellishments because I think this is quite a masculine card.


Thanks for visiting.  The design team have some stunning samples for you, so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Label Love (Altenew)
Ink:  Ranger Archival Black
Cardstock:  White, Sea Glass, Audrey Blue, Fog, Smoke (SSS)
Dies:  Quadrangle Frames (SSS)

Cheers
Karren
