Seize the Birthday #173 - Square cards

Are you ready for a new Challenge this month? 

 Here it is. Glenda has chosen Square Card! 

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If you're not a toppings kinda person, can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

I have been making square cards a lot lately, 
so this was not a problem.  
The decision of what to do was more the challenge. 
Here is my card.

Supplies for this card are: Altenew stamp and die Beautiful Day
Gina K card stock in white and Turquoise Sea
Embossing folder from cuddle bug Weeks Weave
Gina K  ink in Tranquil Sea, Sea Glass, Grass Green, and Fresh Asparagus
MFT Happy Die and sentiment from Clearly Besotted, crystals from my stash. 

 Have to make that square envelope too. That is in the background here.  
I am using up most of the 12 X 12 paper. 

Check out the Surprise Party Guest and all of the other team designs at 

Thanks for stopping by to see more.  I hope that you enjoyed it and 
are motivated to make a square card. It's easy!  
Thanks for all your comments. 



  1. Oh, wow! Those flowers are so gorgeous and they grace your beautiful card perfectly.

  2. Love the beautiful blue flowers on your beautiful square card.

  3. Gorgeous blue blooms Barbara, brilliant idea to make the contrasting envelope too. Cathy x

  4. Gorgeous colors, beautiful blossoms! I love a square card and your petty matching envelope. I know I should make then as I make a card, but I have just mastered completing the insides while creating, this is a whole new level lol You do make it look easy though! :)

  5. Love the beautiful minty flowers and the texture you added in the background! Your card reminds me I have to use embossing folders more often :) !

  6. Beautiful colours for this card! Love the texture the embossing folder adds to the background, too.

  7. Love the weave embossing folder and the beautiful color combo Barbara. Pair that with one of my favorite stamp sets and you have a winner for sure! Gorgeous card!

  8. I love your colors on this card and that awesome background for those beauties! Have a fabulous week! Heart Hugs, Colleen

  9. The colours are so striking! I love how you did the sentiment. The crystals and texture are fabulous.
