Simply Jolly Holiday


I've been having another play with my Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper.  I've seen squares rounded this way before in blogland and thought they looked good so here's my version.  I followed the sketch at Simply Stampin'.



My card base is Cherry Cobbler.  I teamed it up with Basic Black for the mounts.  The four squares were punched out using the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" square punches.  The edges were all corner rounded except for one.  

I added some 1/4" Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon to the strip of Basic Black behind the papered panel.  The sentiment is from Delightful Decorations and punched with the 1" circle punch. It's popped on a Dimensional and then I added some Basic Pearls

This was fun to make once I'd decided how to incorporate my little squares.  Hope you've had a great day and I very much appreciate your comments. x
