Forever Square

Another week has gone by and it's Mojo Monday time again!  This year, I decided to make the last sketch of the month a non-traditional size.  It might be square, round, skinny, a special fold.. anything that strikes my fancy.  For this first sketch I went with a square, which is my go-to quick card.  My size of choice for a square card is 4.25 x 4.25" so it still fits in a regular A2 envelope, but feel free to adapt it to whatever size you enjoy creating.


I pulled out the No Matter What set and some Authentique papers from my stash and got busy getting shabby.  The banners are distressed and I added some doodled edges, then I stamped the flowers and sentiment in archival black and colored with copics.  The background is embossed with a hearts embossing folder and I finished off with a trio of stamped hearts, fussy cut and accented with glassy glaze and glitter.  Super easy and so much fun!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a little time to play along this week.  For more inspiration, be sure to check out the Mojo Monday 432 post for all the other designer makes!

I like this sketch design and thanks for the idea of making a slightly larger square card, one that will fit into an A2 envelope.
