That's right...the Calendar Girls are shaping up!!! Well, our cards are anyway.
Barb, this month's hostess, challenged us to make a shape card. And to make one that we had never tried making before. Or, to use a design that we had never used before.
I made a Spring Card. I have seen several of these cards on blogs and on SCS and never tried making one because I thought it would be complicated. NOT TRUE! it was so easy to make and you can find a tutorial on splitcoaststampers under the resources tab.
I used Bravo Burgundy, Close to Cocoa, Marina Mist and Whisper White card stock. My designer paper is by Creative Imaginations called "Old Guys Rule." I stamped the large sentiment/image using Marina Mist ink and the stamp is from a retired SU set called "So Cool." I used Bravo Burgundy ink for my happy birthday sentiment which is from SU's Teeny Tiny Wishes set and for the small words on the image. Stampin' Up! punches and circle nestabilities were also used.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!
