Today's post is for one of the many challenges going on this month over at Papertrey Ink on Nicole's blog. This first post is in honor of their 9th Anniversary called the Sampler Square.
The challenge called for 9 squares 1 1/2" each different mounted to a 5 1/2" square card.
Here is my version.
As you can see, several of the squares are turned 90 degrees to give some interest.
Some of the squares are very simple, such as this embossed one. White on white doesn't show up too well in this photo but it looks nice in person. The square above has a button with burlap tails on a gold heat embossed square.
One is wrapped twice in polka-dot ribbon, one has star rhinestones, and one is stamped with sweet strawberries.
A few are simply designer paper and striped vellum, but my favorite is the 3 felt flowers with rain stone centers. One is stamped with a simple sentiment.
I mounted the squares on a layer of white card stock and then popped it up with pop dots.
So there you have, this is my submission. Hope you enjoy.
