Simon Says: It's Hip To Be Square

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Make For the Border Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

It's Hip To Be Square

We are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

My niece and her hubby have started a photography business doing weddings, childrens photos and whatnot and they asked me to make them boxes to hold the USB pen drives. This box isn't the same as I designed for them, but very similar, and they and their clients love them :-) The business seems to be going very well, they both are brilliant photographers! It's a pity they don't live near me and they could take photos of my cards for me ;-)

Anyway, for the background I used a Versamark Frost Dazzle ink pad to create a shimmery watermark effect. For the layering mat, hearts and arrow I heat embossed with Liquid Platinum Powder to give it a luscious metallic look. I love how these have turned out simple but effective don't you think? ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

What a gorgeous card and gift box and a super fun and personalized idea of your niece & hubby to put USB's in something special! Much more grand that way :)

These are absolutely beautiful! I love that platinum embossing powder, and I really love how you gave those banners a little "lift" in the center!
