Hip to be square

Where did that week go in between posts??? I know I've been busy creating, but it appears I just haven't made it back here to show things off. I'll have some things to catch up on this week I think.

Anyway, this week's theme at The Kraft Journal is 'Hip to be Square.'  Here's my project:

The card base is white, the next layer is kraft, and the next layer is fabric from one of my favourite tops (I couldn't bear to throw it away, but it got to a point I just couldn't wear it anymore).  The rest of the card is just odds and ends - a feather, some buttons, pearls etc) I had lying around on my desk.  This was so much fun to make!

Here's a side view so you can see just how dimensional it is. Luckily I chose some really sturdy white cardstock, or this baby would have some trouble standing up.

 Thanks for dropping in.

ETA: This card was selected for the Feature me Friday post!! Yay! Click on the pic to be taken to The Kraft Journal blog.

  2. This is SO cool, Teresa! I love all those fun inchies squares you created. Each one has a tiny treasure to look at. And how clever and creative to recycle an old favorite shirt. Totally fabulous take on our hip to be square challenge this week. Thanks so much for playing along with us again.
