A card for a brand new great-nephew. Used a photo of his bedroom to design this card. Even cut into that stash of Parisian Breeze paper - he is a special little guy! Clear embossed the letters for his initials using Brilliance Coffee Bean ink. And Anne Ryan will be so proud of me - I made it a 6" square card!!!
Punch tally: Not much punching but I sure wished I had square punches in the sizes I wanted. Would have been much quicker. But I did punch borders on the inside - top and bottom.

Diz, I'm so proud of your for using some of your hoarded dsp as it's beautiful. What a gorgeous color combo!! Oh, another cute baby card. I just LOVE it!! You barely squeaked in a punch with this one, but you made it on the inside of the card. Whew!!! LOVE how you used the baby's initials in the square boxes and, yes, Anne Ryan will be beside herself to see you making a square card!! You're just evolving from day to day, aren't you???? Hugzi Diz!! TFS!!

Another mighty fine card, Heather! I really love your design and the way you made the card so personal by using the baby's room as inspiration. I think square cards are my favourite shapes, I love 'em!

You rock, Izzy!! This is one super special baby boy card. Love how you used the colors from his room to design this card. Those Parisian Breeze papers are awesome!! The initials look fantastic, and I just love the punched borders (of course!) on the inside. Glad to see no snow in the background of this photo!!!! Hang in there :)

Just LOVE it!! Great colour combo and love how you stamped partial circles around the edges of the squares to frame the letters. A fabulous effect! Punches need a day off now and then so I'm sure they will come out swinging next time :D
