Shaped Cards!!

Today's challenge for the Design Team at Embellish-It Scrapbooking was to make a shaped card , that is, a card other than a rectangle or square or probably even a circle card!

UGH I said........

In one of the thousands of paper crafting magazines that I buy, I saw a lot of house cards so I thought I would try one of those!

I started with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base, cut the top sides at an angle, making sure to leave a little bit of the fold and went from there.

I had some Basic Grey scraps (a lot) to work with so I picked one of the pages from the Two Scoops 6 x 6 collection and one from the Cupcake 6 x 6 paper pack and glued those papers to the card base.

I made a little white frill and added some Walmart ribbon that I stole from Marcie yesterday - thanks Marcie - *waving* and *smiling* and *sticking out my tongue* .........luv you - thanks for the ribbon!! and paper........

I got out my Boards and Beams stamp set from Papertrey Ink and stamped the sentiment on a scrap circle and then adhered it to a scalloped circle. And if you imagine correctly, you can obviously tell that it represents a chimney...... right?... RIGHT??

Yippee do! Hubby is taking me out for lunch - via the hardware store and the post's all good!

Have a good day!
