Uneven Foursquare Card Template – Papercrafting Playdate 111

Let’s play with a new and easy card template! This card design is very basic and is a great way to put together cards when you want something simple to work on. I’ve named this card template the Uneven Foursquare (Card Template #21) because it uses four shapes – two squares and two rectangles. I also spent a lot of time doing my “stampin’ homework” this week figuring out the different ways that my new shapes die sets could work together with other shapes and punches I already have. The simple card template worked as a great backdrop for trying out some of the new die shape combinations I discovered. Wow! This was so much fun, and I hope that you not only try this week’s card template, the Uneven Foursquare, but get out all your shape dies and punches for a homework session! (Scroll all the way down for my punch & die combination pdfs.)
