Saturday Sketch Challenge #270

Hello everyone! It's Patti, and do I have a sketch for you!!!!  It's a square card, and you know how much I adore square cards.   I love when Selene and Gretchen design their Saturday Sketch Challenge sketches.  They show how gorgeous cards can be made in all shapes and sizes.  

Here's some measurements to get you started:
  1. Layer One -- Cardstock cut at 4.25 x 8.5", scored and folded to make the Card Base
  2. Layer Two -- Cardstock or DSP cut at 3 x 4"
  3. Layer Three -- Cardstock or DSP cut at 1 x 4" -- cover up "seam" between Layers 2 & 3 with ribbon or a border punched strip of cardstock. Add a bow or knot for visual interest.
  4. Layer Four -- Cardstock cut 1 3/4" square.  Mat with a piece of cardstock 1/4" larger.
  5. Layer Five -- Cardstock cut with 1" circle punch.  Mat with two larger circle punches.
Okay -- now, are you read to be inspired by the Operators and their projects this week?  You'll notice that we are a few operators short this week.  Life has been crazy for many of us!!!   They'll be back with us as soon as they can!!!

Are you ready to play along?  We hope that you are!  Here are our rules for play.
  1. Make a card using your Stampin' Up Supplies!
  2. Post it online somewhere to your blog or other online forum
  3. Post a link to the free linky tool below (please point the link to your post and NOT just your blog).
  4. Have some fun and leave comments for each other (and for the operators if you like their work). ~ Everyone loves comments!
  5. Please note, we reserve the right to remove links with non-Stampin' Up! product, "sales pitches", links to online stores, or requests to join your team. We're here to have fun, learn from one another and share.
We hope you join us this week and play along with this sketch! But don't delay our links will close at 8AM on Thursday morning Eastern Standard Time.

Happy Stamping,


  1. I was making a little notecard set, and decided to use your layout for my cards. I needed a little boost in the creative juices, and you had just what I needed. I love making square cards, and that's what reminded me to come back to your challenge today. Thanks for your teams lovely samples again this week.

  2. Okay, so I'm a newbie, messed up my posting, you get a lovely picture of me! instead of my card. Looks like I can"t delete so I will try again. Sorry :(

  3. Thanks for another Great sketch! Can't wait to have all you fab ladies back next month!!!
