Take Shape

The new challenge over on the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge blog this week is TAKE SHAPE.  Make a shaped card.  So I decided that I really wanted a card of a more unusual shape.  That is not a star, heart, circle etc.  So take a look at what I came up with.
I cut the wine bottle and glass from the SUMMER IN PARIS cartridge.  I really used this cartridge a good bit when I first got it.  I moved on to other cartridges as most of us do.  I am so glad that I came back to this one for this card.  It is inspiration to use it more often because the cuts are really beautiful.  I used the Gypsy to weld the front and back of the card together.  I wanted it to have a base so I cut a dollie in half and inked it with a tan ink pad.  I added the flower for dimension and color.    For the tag, I used the LACEY LABELS cartridge.  I then  used a ribbon punch on it to thread the ribbon.  

The paper I used is from K&Company.  The flower is from Recollections.  The stamp is an Inkadinkado stamp.  And the ribbon was purchased at Hobby Lobby.

  8. Very pretty, I made a shaped card just like this for a FCCB challenge a few months ago. Mine was more masculine in burgundy and green. It was for my brothers 5oth. Don't you love "Summer in Paris"
