At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Shaped Cards or Anything But Square.We have the fabulous Doodle Pantry as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.
Well..I have to admit I own a Grand Calibur,some Grand Nesties and some Go Kreate Half XXL Frames…so why do I grab a square card every time?! Convenience…laziness…perhaps because they’re buried in the cupboard under stacks of other crafty stuff?Hmmm…not really sure :S So I decided to have fun creating a card with the super adorable Charlie Daisy by Doodle Pantry.Not only do you get Charlie himself (in both B/W outline and colour) you get a whole host of goodies including backing papers,sentiments and lots of other elements to print in outline or colour form to use as embellishments or even as the focal point of your card 😀 Firstly I coloured Charlie using Copic Ciao Markers to coordinate with the papers.Next I pulled out my Grand Calibur and Go Kreate dies to cut the base card and a couple of layers.A panel featuring the other patterned paper has been set askew.As I wanted some texture I pulled out a piece of this wavy corrugated card and stapled a length of raffia lace to it.To embellish I cut out a few pre-coloured daisies and butterflies,adding dots of 3D Crystal Lacquer to them and also to the butterfly that has landed,rather cheekily,on Charlie’s nose.I printed out the sentiment and to create the ‘lozenge’ shape I took the smaller version of the dies I cut the base from and gave them a quarter turn,then trimmed.I adhered it to the orange die cut piece then cut it down to make sure I got it right!Time for some more staples 🙂 I tend to add these on the wonk so there’s no pressure and disappointment when they’re not where they should be!!
