It's Hip to be Square! {3 square cards}

I received the new CTMH Wishes card book and just had to re-create the first card in this amazing book that really stood out to me -- Enchanting Enclosure. I changed the color combo for a boy and changed the part that wraps around. I just made it to attach to the front and glued it down. I made the larger one 6x6 and the smaller one 5x5. I followed the tip on how to make the background paper by using the polka dot background stamp and clear embossing it. Then I sponged the ink (Heavely Blue and Chocolate) all over the card, making the white polka dots stand out. For the little 3x3 card, I used the Mini Combination pattern. For this one I used Crystal Blue ink over the embossed polka dots. I stamped the flowers from Thank You, then clear embossed them before stamping over the flowers again with Bamboo ink, offsetting it a little.

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Argyle Backgrounds stamp set
Thank You stamp set
Sans Alpha lowercase stamp set
Solo B stamp set
Solo S stamp set
Notebook, Magic Moments and Silhouette B&Ts
Chocolate, White Daisy, Bamboo, Black, and Colonial White CS
Chocolate, Heavenly Blue, Crystal Blue, Bamboo and Black inks
Cricut (blue stars - George & Basic shapes, baby - Base Camp)
Star Punch Large - green stars (SU)
White Daisy ricrac
Chocolate polka dot organdy
DMC floss in brown and tan
Hodgepodge Color Ready alpha
Rhinestone CC frame
Scallop corner punch (EK Success)
Clear Embossing powder
Piercing tool
Scallop edge punch (SU)
