Shapely Saturday 21-2017

What shapes can you do for your cards?

Gracie certainly has a striking card that is far from a run-of-the-mill rectangle.

Time to go through my Silhouette files again!  I found this cute little pitcher card.  It opens from the top.  I inked the edges of the flowers and attached them with glue dots.  I added blue twine around the pitcher before attaching it to the card base.  I used the paper pad for the strip on the card. ~ Gracie

I used a variation of a box card.

One of the things that happened when the new Explore and Design Space came out was the ability to use svg files in addition to the cartridges.  Since I have a pretty large collection of cartridges, I never really looked into using svg files from other sources until I looked at some from  They have some beautiful 3-d projects and when they had a special before Mother's Day, I went ahead and purchased 2 collections and the 3rd collection called Garden Party was free.  This bird house is part of that collection and really takes box cards up a notch.  I used a yellow card stock as the base and several papers from the Graphic 45 Nature's Sketch Book for all the other cuts including the flowers.  I sponged distress ink around all the cuts and added enamel dots for the flower centers instead of the paper centers.  I also fussy cut some butterflies from the paper to add a few extra places.  I was also able to add writing on Design Space to write on the front and back of the card to personalize it.  I love this and can't wait to make others from this collection. - Denise
