If you've been following my blog for long you know that each month at Technique Club I also host a swap between the members of the club. Each month I give them a different assignment or challenge they must use in their card. For May the assignment was to create a 5 1/4" square card.
Here are the results. I can really see each of these stampers abilities growing. It makes me so happy to know I've helped someone discover abilities they didn't know they had.

If you'd like to make your own square 5 1/4" card here are a few things to keep in mind. Stampin' Up! does sell 5 1/2" square envelopes to mail these cards. They are on page 157 of the Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog. Anytime you mail a square card it takes extra postage.
Give one a try and send me a photo. It might just end up here on my blog!
