Be Inspired #18


The Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired for Wednesday was to do a Shaped Card. It has been so cold here lately, that I was ready to hurry spring with a fun Easter Egg card. This was cut from Doodlecharms, using Design Studio to weld the front and back into a complete card, then cutting a separate "belly band" from green cardstock. The front of the egg was embossed with the Paisley Cuttlebug folder, then inked with two shades of purple. The band was stamped with a StudioG message, and then embossed with a cut Swiss Dots folder. The band has two slits cut in it to allow the ribbon to pass under the Happy Easter then be tied in a little bow on the side. The little chickie was first stamped with Sunflower ink, then covered with mulberry paper to give the fuzzy look. Both pieces were accented with dots of liquid pearls to give it a finished look. Jump over to Cuttlebug Challenge to see what the other designers have come up with, and add your own creations! C'mon and give it a try! What shape do you want to do?????

Happy Easter already? Oh how time flies away!
I love the little chick. That could make a shape card on his own. Don't you agree we should do shape cards again someday?
