Square Little Birthday Card

Today I have a cute little square card that really is all about the Designer Paper that is used.  The paper used is from the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Paper set.  Such pretty designs and the colors are nice and bright - just right for a birthday celebration!

Stamps:  Bring On The Cake
Ink:  Island Indigo
Paper:  Whisper White, Island Indigo,  Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Strawberry Slush cardstock and Quatrefancy Specialty DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot with Labels Collection Framelits, AquaPainter, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and Dimensionls
This is a cute and quick card to make.  It's sized at 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" so it fits in the A2 envelope nicely.    The smallest Framelit from the set was used to die-cut the new Strawberry Slush cardstock piece in the center.  (Now I need to think of something to use those little die-cut pieces!!) 

I love those little flags of coordinating cardstock under the Strawberry Slush layer.  Just a little accent of the colors present in the Quatrefancy paper.   The stamped birthday cake looked a little bland, so I touched it up a little with the AquaPainter so it didn't look so flat.

Here's another card made with a different print from the same DSP.  It looks bolder than the first one, so maybe this would be the man's version??  Or maybe not...

The rhinestones were added to the corners of the Strawberry Slush layer to add a little bling.  You know you need some bling on everything, right?

Hope you like this idea - simple and fun to do.  Thanks for stopping in.  Come back again for more ideas.   Sharon
