CFC65 - Hip to be Square



This week's CASual Friday challenge is to make a square card. I love square cards - I think they look modern and cool, and if you make them 4.25 x 4.25, they still fit into a regular envelope and don't require extra postage (does anyone actually pay that extra postage? But I digress....)

This card was inspired by yet another photo on my Inspiration Board on Pinterest (except I used squares not rectangles). I used a square nestability to draw two squares and then connected the points and coloured it in. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!

PS - did you see that my jet card was chosen as a VIP for last week's CASual Friday challenge? It's so exciting to be chosen from so many amazing cards!

My eye was drawn immediately to your card - love the white with the clean, crisp colors and the multiple squares that created your octagon & triangle pattern - gorgeous end result!
