Hip to be square !

Hello fellow Crafters,

Last month I won a stamp set for being runner up in the Art Impression Challenge called "Cute as a button". I used part of this stamp set today for this month's challenge which is : "Hip to be square". Here is my square card :

I used some grey and pink patterned paper for the background. I matted these pieces on black card stock. I stamped Selma on white card stock and coloured her with Copic Markers. I also matted this bit of paper on black card stock. I then adhered everything on the main panel together with the brads and the little 'vacation' label' which was also matted on black paper. 
That was it ! 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it....


  1. Selma looks to be such a fabulous lady!!! The colours have a lovely Retro quality to them.
    Always love what you create

  2. Lovely in her fancy suit. Great coloring!

  3. Hahaha, fantastic, really funny!!! Good night Corrie, Coco x

    Groetjes Karin

  5. Matting art in black always makes it stand out (a tip I learned from Nellie!), and you can see how well it works here! I have been making square cards for years, Corrie, but always have difficulty with finding envelopes for them I usually end up cutting up a Kraft envelope which usually detracts from the card. What do you use? Anyway, super great image for your card!

    1. Hi Kay, I usually cheat by buying packs of cardblanks, already scored, with envelopes. If you don't want to do that, you could use the envelope scoring board. I have the one from We R Memory keepers. It works perfectly with just plain white typing paper (a little bit thicker than what you would use in your printer. Hope this helps! Mwah! Corrie x

  6. Dat zijn toch leuke stempels... En zoals je deze geplaatst hebt op een bijna klassieke elegante kaart vind ik gaaf! Fijn Pinksterweekend verder, Gerrina

  7. Hehehehehe!! Fabulous image!!

  8. Selma is simply hilarious, and I love the pink and grey... fab card!
