House of Cards: Shaped Cards


Hello, hello!  Happy Monday and Happy February!  It's time for a new challenge at House of Cards, and we have a fun one for you!  We're asking you to "SHAPE UP"!  That means shaped cards--anything other than square or rectangle!


I decided to not only do a shaped card, but a shaped EASEL card--because they are SO fun to make!  They are easiest to do when you use nesting dies, and that's what I did this month.  Take a peek...


I used some digital paper from the Stenciled Roses pack and an image from the Stencil in the Roses set from MHKDesigns, along with a sentiment from a retired Stampin' Up! set.  A few pearls and some Stickles were the only finishing touches I added.


I think this would be the perfect accent on a desk for a daily reminder.  I actually think that's what I'll keep it and use it for!  I hope you like my card, too!  Please leave me a comment below to let me know your thoughts. :)


Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take some time to join our challenge and check out the inspiration from the rest of the DT, too!  They ALWAYS inspire me, and I know they'll do the same thing for you, too!  I'll be back again soon with more paper crafted projects to share with you.  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

What a beauty of a shaped easel card; I like the use of the pearls to hold it in place while standing.
