It's me hosting our Shaped Cards challenge today and I would like to see a shaped card.
This means no rectangles or
squares please, and this time it does have to be a card!
Please remember the 15
challenges total rule too - if you enter more than 15 we won't be commenting and you won't be considered for winner or top 5.
My card is a pop up box card - for this one I used a hunkydory base that had fancy edging on it. I'm working with my scan n cut to make my own template up using shapes but I haven't mastered the whole welding etc process yet...
My brief was a 90th birthday card for a friends Nan and I was told she loved flowers and butterflies and particularly daisies.
I used my serif programme to make my backing papers for the box base, and I used some tonic dies that I had for the flap tops. All the toppers were edged with distress inks. I used another die to make a bunting banner bearing the word "NAN", that I attached to tooth picks and then inserted into the box by attaching them to the "bridges" inside.
The flowers wre all dies, that I coloured with distress inks and a finger dauber to colour the centres. I coloured the butterflies in the die cut toppers with the same colour distress ink (lemonade?). I stamped the greeting into the topper on the front flap (which I had cut plain) and finally, attached a triple bow cut from organza ribbon to the front, and a 90 pennant to the back.
