Retro Squares

     Today's Ways to Use It Challenge has us using squares. I thought of a pillow I saw at this week's inspiration site Eastern Accents that had fun, retro squares. I also thought that this would work well to add extra squares by using the inlaid embossing technique with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. Here's the finished card.

Stamps: Timeless Talk
Paper: Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: 1 1/4" convex and concave square punches, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, ribbon, staple
Techniques: Inlaid Embossing

    Just a hint, the inset pieces are easiest to do if you punch the inner shape first then punch the square around the hole.
