I have taken this challenge in the literal sense and made a square card. My card is 5"x5".

Sending Big Hugs #1

I die cut masking paper using a square die and masked the centre of the card with the masking paper die cut to the centre of the card. Then I used MISTI to stamp layers of tropical leaves from Tropical Leaves stamp set. I have double stamped many of the leaves to get even coverage. I have used Simon Says Stamp Lucky, Jelly Bean, Willow, Malibu Blue, Melon, Sunshine and Hot Lips inks and Delicata Gold Pigment ink. Then I removed the masking paper. There was a bit of bleeding as I had double stamped and also stamped layers. Masking paper do not hold that much of ink from stamping. To fix the bleeding, I used my black fineliner and drew the border inside. This added a nice frame and contrast.

I stamped the greeting from Big Scripty Greetings in the centre using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.  I felt the card needed a bit of dimension. So I stamped and die cut images from Tropical Leaves images and clustered adhered them diagonally opposite to the sentiment.
