Shaped Cards

This month is just speeding by isn’t it!  It’s time once again for the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop and this week our team is doing Shaped Cards!  This like this are always more difficult for me but I think I came up with a cool idea.

I was looking at my Naturally Eclectic dsp and my Eclectic Layers Thinlits and decided I could have some fun with a gem shaped card.  It ended up being much easier to make than I thought it would be.

Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sky – 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 folded.  The top part is measuring in 1 1/8 in and 1 1/8 down on both sides.  Once that is cut, mark over 2 1/8 along bottom and cut down on an angle from each side to create the diamond shape.  I played around to make my layers – one with the gem print then layer that onto Night of Navy.  Add to card front.
  • Whisper White – Cut out Stitched Circle Shape, add using dimensionals.
  • Night of Navy, Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist – cut out bottom gem base; Silver Glimmer – cut out 3 gem details, layer and add to card front.
  • Soft Sky, stamp banner and greeting using Night of Navy, punch out with the Banner Duo punch, add to card front using dimensionals.
