I'm So Square

I don't remember who I CASEd this card from.  They used different colors though.  And a different stamp set.  And different Designer Series Paper.  And a different ribbon.  Theirs was 3 by 5 squares so it would fit a standard card and mine is 5 by 5 squares so it will fit a larger, 6X6 card.  I just cut a sheet of 12X12 cardstock in half and folded it for the base. 

The DSP is cut into 1" squares.  Be careful to keep it straight or you will be figuring out a puzzle with all the pieces shaped the same! I started in the lower left corner and left just an eighth of an inch between each.  After I had all squares aligned and placed on a sheet of Chocolate Chip cardstock I trimmed it to where there was a border about 1/4" and then mounted it onto an Always Artichoke square and them a Baja Breeze square.

Add a piece of Scalloped Dot Ribbon in Chocolate Chip before adhering all these layers onto the card base.  I finished it off with a sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set.  This is a 2-case set of stamps.  I reckon there must be a sentiment for anyone's birthday in there.  There is even a late card sentiment that I'm sure I'll be using a lot!

Don't forget, Wednesday is the last day for:

The Summer Mini Catalog
The Strength and Hope campaign
Buy 3 get one free DSP

I'd be glad to help you with your stampin' and scrapbooking needs.
