Jingle Belles- Shape Up!
Shape up! The Jingle Belles challenge this week is to make a shaped card! Okay, I think I made a shaped card back in the 90's, but haven't since, so this was actually a challenge for me! Once I got an idea in my head, I got excited and eager to start.
So, here's my not so Clark Griswald decorated home for the holidays:
AND, I even made the house shape attach to a card that actually opens! Squeal! I was so impressed with myself!
If you look close, really close, you can see the coarse glitter I used on the chimney, trees and window edges. Those trees are cut from a Papertrey Ink die and the snow drifts? Those are die cut clouds from felt, cut in half. My wreath was assembled with Hero Arts poinsettia flowers and leaves, all attached with a vivid green brad. The Christmas lights are from Michael's and they have glitter on them too! ;) Whew!
Now, shape up, or ship out! That's what I always say to my kiddos... get yourself going on a shaped card- it was fun!
