Tremaine Square

I recently acquired a die from Memory Box called Tremaine Square.  It was part of their Summer 2014 collection, and it attracted me partly because of its size: 2.1" x 2.1" (or 5.4 x 5.4 cm.).  I thought it was perfect to mount over the small square versions of the acrylic block stamping technique that I have been obsessively playing with.  Here are some examples of the 2" squares I have been making with this technique, and if you are a regular reader of my blog, you have seen a tutorial on this here.

Here's my card.  I just added some glue to the die cut and stuck it down over one of my stampings done on watercolor paper, and added a sentiment from Magenta.  The square was popped up on the base card with foam tape.  I applied some Stickles to the centers of the flowers and sprinkled a few gems.  It would be easy to make a set of cards for different occasions using this same design.
