It's Hip to Be Square

Well, I told y'all earlier this week that it's hip to be square. I rediscovered my love for these cute little square cards recently, and just can't stop making them! This one uses one of Jen's awesome Sketch For You To Try sketches from a while back. The stamps are from the same Puppy Love Clearly Swanky set (The Cat's Pajamas) that I used on yesterday's card. I just love these little birdies - everytime I see them I smile.

I stamped the lovebirds in Versafine Onyx Black and colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and then accented the beaks and hearts with Spica Glitter pens. I cut and embossed the square with my Nestabilites dies and matted onto a scallop square. The sentiment says, "Love is in the Air" and I colored in the dotted I's with Spica Glitter pens and then covered with Stardust Stickles. I added a little random Stickles lines under the birdies feet, to give them a little snowy ground to be standing on. The pink/red background paper is from the Kiss & Tell collection by My Mind's Eye. The black/white flourish paper is from the Cosmopolitan collection by American Crafts. I divided the two panels with a piece of black/silver satin ribbon from May Arts and finished off with three K & Company pearl embellishments.
