Hi everyone! It's May and that means another challenge is up at Lily-Boo Too challenge blog. The challenge this month is to make a card any shape but a rectangle or square. I know some of you make shaped cards often but this is a rarity for me.
For my card I used one of the cat images from Lily-Boo's Boutique. He looks quite happy with his giant ball of yarn. I used my Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge to cut the shape of the card. I know wild card is an obvious choice for shaped cards, but they are all themed and I wanted a clean slate to work with. I cut our my image after I colored it using my scalloped edge scissors. The I inked those edges and after I glued it down to my base I added an iridescent glittered embossing powder to make it pop even more. I wrote the words "HAVE A BALL" with my Ranger perfect medium pen and then added aqua embossing powder to it.
The inside of the card is lined with circles that are shaped like gears that I cut with my Cricut using SCAL (I wanted to use scallops but thought they were a little feminine) one larger then the card to peek out when you look at the front and one smaller to fit inside.
I used the colors aqua, red and white for the color challenge on PCM (I knew I could find that paper;))
This is a birthday card for my Dad who happens to be a cat lover, but don't tell him, his birthday isn't till the 20th.
This card also qualifies for the following challenges:
