I have a little square card that is showcasing some retiring products for today’s project.  I love making square cards.  This one is a 4 X 4 size.  I make quite a lot of 3 X 3 to use as Random Act of Kindness cards.  For mailing though it needs to be at least a 4 X 4.



Retiring Sadness

I am so sad when I look at a stamp set or bundle and realize that I should have used it more.  Sadly this is one of those times.  The Bundle is the Today’s Tiles Bundle.  I made a couple of 3X3 cards using the sentiments and one of the other square tiles, but that was it.  And now it is retiring!  So Sad!!

I paired this with the also retiring Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper.  This is one of my favorites because it is all bright colors.  Plus it is a 6 X 6 stack!   I naturally pulled all of my colors from this precious paper.


Color Inspiration

The Night of Navy was what I saw as the boldest of the cute circles of the DSP piece.  So it was my base and tile layers.  I then went to the other end of the spectrum and chose the lightest color of the sheet.  That is the Purple Posy.  Sadly it is a retiring item as well.

The sentiment is stamped using the Night of Navy Ink.  And the finishing touch to all of the details of the die cuts is the Pastel Pearls.  I think they paired perfectly with the Purple Posy.  Additionally, they sort of mimic the circle of the DSP.


As I said this is a 4X4 card.  The base is 4 X 8.  The Purple Posy is 3 3/4 X 3 3/4.  And the DSP is 3 1/2 X 3 1/2

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for the InKing Royalty April Blog Hop.  There will be quite a lot of great card designs for you to check out.
