Shaped Card for Mom

Day 4 of Celebrating MOM!

If you are just joining, I am having a challenge this week, enter your MOM projects to win here.

Today, I decided to make a shaped card.



For those of you without Design Studio or a Gypsy....Don't Worry!!  I didn't use either.

It is very easy to make shaped cards with any image.

Recollection and AC {Enchanted} papers
I am using the Straight From the Nest cartridge
I cut 2 shadows of this butterfly {5"}
Lay them on top of one another and score somewhere on them that they can be glue together to form your card.  I scored just below the antennae
I cut the base layer of the butterfly and all its layers {5"} and assembled before attaching it to the shadows.
I inked all my edges, added some pearls to the body and wrapped hemp around it
The butterfly was placed on its shadow with 3D foam dots
I cut a tag from TBBM, inked and stamped with an SU! sentiment, tied that to the hemp and added a lace bow.




These are very fun and easy cards to make.  Possibilities are endless.


I am beginning to make a list of my pros and cons to the E2, I'll share next week.


Don't forget to enter the Celebrating MOM Challenge....you might win!!
