It's Hip to be Square

That's the theme for this week's challenge at The Kraft Journal! Why is it that every single time I say that I hear the song in my head? Is that happening to you right now? Your Welcome!!

With a theme like "square" I just had to make a square card. I started out by making a 5 x 5 inch square base and then went from there. Here is my square card,

I made a 4 x 4 square design on the card by cutting A LOT of 1 x 1 squares from two sided pattern paper and folding them in half. After inking them up I attached the half squares back to back to make a dimensional pattern of...what else...squares. It was really fun and I really like how it turned out. The flower is made with a great new product that the Kraft Outlet is offering. It's called Gaffer Tape and is put out by 7 Gypsies. If you haven't used it before it's pretty much like fabric tape. I topped the flower off with a button and a sentiment stamped on a Grungy Tag. 

I hope you will join us over at The Kraft Journal this week, it's hip to be square ya know!!
