Sunny Challenge 86/13

August 18, 2013

This week our challenge has been bought to us by Vicky and she wants us to make a shaped card.  That’s it no sketch, no colour combo just make any kind of shaped card.

0107My shaped card is made using the Label Collection Framelits.  I cut the largest framelit from Whisper White card on the fold to make the card base and then cut another single large framelit from Whisper White for the card front.  I cut the next size smaller framelit also from Whisper White card and embossed it using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.  I attached these pieces together and then set out decorating the card front.  I have only recently purchased the Stippled Blossoms stamp set so I thought I would play with it.  I stamped the solid flower in Crisp Cantaloup and over stamped with the detail flower using Calypso Coral. 0117

I created three large flowers and two small flowers and cut them all out.  I stamped the leaves using Old Olive ink.  I stamped off once for the solid leaf so that it would give a little more dimension.  The leaves are also cut out.  I stamped the greeting from the Bring on the Cake stamp set using Calypso Coral ink and punched it using the Scallop Oval Punch.  I attached the greeting to a Extra Large Oval punched from Old Olive card and then attached the flowers and leaves to the card front around the greeting.

I created another small flower and two sets of the small leaves, cut them out and attached them on the inside of the card.

I think I may have overdone it with the flowers but thought I would share anyway.  What do you think, is it too much?

Oh well, for some more inspiration visit Sunny Challenges and Creations and see what the design team has in store for you.  Once you have created your card, pop back and add it to Mr. Linky.  I will be interested to see what kind of shapes you create.

Bye for now, Kris.

    This is such a beautiful card, Kris. I love the white-on-white look achieved with the embossed panel on the base, and the colours you’ve chosen for the flowers are just gorgeous!
