It’s challenge time again at Crafty Cardmakers and it’s my turn to host. I would love to see all your shaped cards.
I chose one of my favourite shapes for my card, Spellbinders Labels 25.
I cut three card blanks with the largest of the dies, and also cut some patterned paper from the Prima Firefly pad, which I covered one of the blanks with. With the Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 I cut into one of the other blanks and layered it over the top of the one with the patterned paper. I did it this way because I gutted the paper to get the central design, also cut from the Majestic Labels 25, and I needed it to look neat on the inside of the card so in effect I sandwiched a frame of the patterned paper between two pieces of white card. I could of course have just cut a frame with the larger of the Maj Labels dies, but I find I am not that accurate so it’s easier to layer some paper over the top to give the impression of a frame.
The butterflies are a Joycraft die cut from some foiled cardstock, and the sentiment comes from a Craftwork Cards kit.
