Holiday Squares Sketch

I had some paper scraps I was determined to turn into cards. I have a 1-1/4" square punch which made these easy to do. The only piece I had to fuss with is the sentiment strip. You do need to go slow as you need to get the squares placed just right since it's a precise fit and to make sure they'd feel coordinated I worked with prints from the same paper pad by K&Company. 


I created a sketch in case you want to give this a try and could use some visual guidance. I can definitely see myself using this design for cards for many occasions by switching out the papers and sentiment.


Happy Crafting Everyone!

Paula, your cards are beautiful! I love the papers mixed like this. I never would have thought to make the sentiment one piece; it's always a struggle for me to figure out how to get one on my cards. Thank you so much for the sketch. I'll be using it soon!

Hi Paula! Your cards are beautiful and I really am glad to have this sketch! Just a tad bigger than "inchies" and the right size to fit an A2 card! Thank you!!
