Square Punch Challenge

 Is it possible to make a card for Square Punch Challenge  ( Moxie Fab World ) without owning any square punches? Well, since I don't have any square punches or square die cut, I was going to skip this challenge... somehow I changed my mind once I thought of the design.

So without further ado, here it is!
GET WELL
This card measures 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". Each squares is 1"x 1".  I used my circle punch and scored the rounded area and turned them into squares. The brown "card stock" are actually scraps of coffee sleeves. I applied some SRM Stickers (sentiment) and colored the flower...add some embellishments (button, pearl, gem, twine and brad). The paper are from Basic Grey's Lucille collection and Hero Arts Layering paper (Punch). Oddly enough, there's NO stamping in this card! Shocking, huh? 

Next is a STAMPED project that I can't wait to share! Thanks for stopping by!

I can't believe you turned circles into squares, Virginia. That would never, ever have occurred to me. You are amazing and so is your card :)

Melissa Shea said...

I also don't own any square punches. I can't justify them as it would be easy to use my trimmer. I love what you did, even the recycled coffee sleeve!
