Master Thread

I hope this isnt toooo early :razz: I just wanted to make sure it was done on time so no one got into a dither about it not being there or got annoyed with me ;)

So this week's sketch challenge starts a little something different. From now on, the last week of every month the sketch challenge sketch will be a different shape - sketches of horizontal legal sized cards, vertical legal sized cards, square cards and any other great shaped card I can find to use :)

I've never done a square card but I've always wanted to so this will be great inspiration for me also! This is a simple but lovely square card done by Jules. I wish she would post more again - I love her work :( Anywho - I think this sketch is very simple and elegant and the small block at the bottom would be perfect for a sentiment but also I think would be smashing with just a small detail design.

Doh! I forgot to add directions for an easy square card
Make a standard fold notecard - 5.5"X4.25"
Cut 1.25" off of the long side
Now you have a card that is 4.25"x4.25" and it fits in a regular sized notecard envie so you dont have to worry about extra postage
Feel free to make the card any size you'd like though, i just thought I would give the super easy directions =)

never too early! I'll work on mine later one! Thanks for getting this in speedily!

stampinsusie 12-27-2005 01:56 PM

Wow! I don't think I've ever seen anything by Jules before so I just had a quick glance around her gallery - she's got some wonderful things there. There's a Roses in Winter card that is absolutely gorgeous - and not near enough comments to tell her how pretty it is. Thanks, Andrea. I'll get to this challenge early tomorrow morning.

I am still working on thank-yous. This one is for dh to give to his coworkers. It needed to be masculine. Looks better in person because the tree is embossed in copper and that gets lost in the scan...oh well...typical. First square card I ever made....kind of fun to do something different!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for posting early. I've had company for over a week and not been able to stamp :( . I'm making up for lost time and will get started on this before I go to bed.


Now what set to use, Hmmmmmm.

I have always been curious about the challenges but have never done one until now. My first attempt I am really not happy with but I tried. I LOVED the challenge though and will try again. I will probably become a Challenge Junkie!! Thank You.

Your card is lovely. Keep em' comin'. If you become a challenge junkie you will be joining a very large group of junkies. We all look forward to each new challenge like crazy people.

slprunning 12-28-2005 09:10 AM

Ok...I love these square cards and am having a hard time stopping....I promise this will be my last one. Thanks for looking!

I love these square cards! Can't wait to do more.

Thanks for looking.

grammatroll 12-28-2005 09:36 AM

A couple weeks ago I bought a star template from Creative Memories and thought that would make a unique card. I can't wait to see all the different shapes you come up with, Andrea.

TFL,

lacyquilter 12-28-2005 12:53 PM

This is my first ever square card. Thanks, Andrea, for the reminder that by making it 4-1/4", it could still be mailed in a A2 envelope. Here's my square card.

emilymomto3boys 12-28-2005 01:09 PM

Ok, I did a 4x4 square so I could still use a regular envy...

the_mad_stamper 12-28-2005 01:31 PM

My card is finally not pending anymore.

Here's mine. It looks crooked here, but not irl. It's 4 x 4.

kittie747 12-28-2005 03:40 PM

This is a really nice change. I have not made a square card before. I am suffering a little though over my addiction to Christmas cards as I love making them the most but am making strides to move on. Sad...isn't it???!!!

Here it is.

Here's Mine:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...00&ppuser=8538

I didn't look at anyone elses before doing this because I didn't want to be swayed. I wanted to complete the challenge all on my own. Now I'm going to go through and see what everyone else came up with.

I chose the 4.25 x 4.25 size.

Oh, Kittie,

Did you join the 2006 Christmas card challenge? Then you can keep on making them -- like 10 per month! :)

summerthyme64 12-28-2005 05:06 PM

What beautiful cards you are all posting. Here is my Sketch Card, but probably still in pending for a bit!

Here's mine! It's my first square card and my first sketch challenge! What fun! I forgot to put that it is 5.5" x 5.5" (even though I don't have that size envelope!) Oh well! :)

I think I may join it. I enjoy Christmas cards so much and sold more than 70 at my work to raise money for our Adopt-A-Family. I could really get a great start on that project for Chrismtas 06.

Jami 12-28-2005 07:25 PM

I love making square cards and it looks like I might have time to play tomorrow! WooHoo!!!

nancy littrell 12-28-2005 08:33 PM

I have never done a square card. I love your 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square so you do not need a special envelope. Thanks again Andrea for your awesome sketches. I plan to play soon. Nancy

summerthyme64 12-28-2005 09:24 PM

Here's Another. Combined this with the Colour Challenge.
Can't wait to see yours Nancy!!!
