On Monday, a challenge was posted to the InStyle Stamps blog to create a "square coat card." Using the directions on the blog I got to work making my card. For my "coat" and belly band I used a piece of double sided paper from American Crafts. I think it pairs well with the SU River Rock and Baja Breeze so I used those colors for my inner card paired with some Basic Black. The stamp (Marti from InStyle Stamps) is colored with Prismacolor pencils and layered with Nestabilities. I colored the Prima flower with a Copic marker and added some jewels to the center.I did change up my version a little. I created a belly band to hold my card shut instead of attaching the strip to the "coat" and tying it shut with a ribbon like it shows in the directions. Here's a view with the band removed and the "coat" open to reveal the card inside. I really had a lot of fun trying this style of card. I hope you'll join the challenge!
