#161 Shaped Card

Jackie is hosting our Shaped Cards challenge today. Please no rectangles or squares and this time it does have to be a card! Please remember the 15 challenges total rule.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT
My shaped card is a pop up box.  I have used serif craft artist to create the panels and have used Tonic dies and a Hunkydory base card already die cut.

For my card, I've done a circular easel card. It's been done with a friend (who's a bit of a rabbit-fan) in mind. The image and paper is from the Crafter's Companion Bebunnin Floral CDRom, the sentiment is from a Crafter's Companion stamp set, and the dies are a mix of manufacturers. 

For my card I decide to make a circle accordion card. The die for the card is by Elizabeth Crafts Design.. The paper is from My Minds Eye and is called Sunny.  The rubber stamped flowers and butterflies are a set of stamps and dies by Hero Arts.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up.  The images were coloured with Copics and a glitter gell pen.

For my Shaped Card I went with a hand cut cotton spool and added all the trimmings.
I have made a scalloped circle easel card using Spellbinder dies to cut the shapes and stamps from Acid Drops and Whatnots.

My shaped card is made with another of my Masterboards and various dies by Spellbinders, Marianne and Memory Box. Hope you like it.

I have used a Marianne Craftables Die to make the shape of the card and a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and a Lee Holland Stamp

I used Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Labels Four and a pierced circle die to create my shaped card.  I really enjoyed this challenge and will definitely use this technique in the future.
I have used one of my favourite Go Create dies for the base to my shaped card.

The cute chef is from a MFT set called "Recipe For Happiness" and I used my Silhouette to cut the base and the different elements for my apron card.

I have used the Stampin' Up! Top Note die to make this shaped card.  Topped off with a flair from the Funky Flair Studio
