I used a 3/4" square punch and then cut them from corner to corner. I lightly penciled some guidelines on a 3.75" square base and then glued down each piece. Gluing down such small pieces was not easy, so they are not precise, but they're close enough to create the effect I was aiming for. The color palette is taken from this week's Color Throwdown challenge, and while it's not one I would have come up with on my own I like the way they look together and they make a nice choice for a festive, fun occasion like a birthday card.
So not only did I manage to enter two challenges, I have a card all set to mail out. Well, all set except for an envelope which I'll probably have to make by hand too since I'm not likely to find a single square envelope easily.
