The challenge for this fortnight has been set by my team mate CG. She wants us to make a shaped card, and is especially looking for creativity.
Now, this is something I struggle with. I think I have a fairly good sense of colour, but I'm not good at shape and dimension, and that's even worse when we move in to three dimensions. But, with the aid of a die set or several, I came up with this:
The main card shape uses a die set from Marianne Creatables. You need three of the die cuts to get this shape. I added patterned paper which I bought from The Works.
I decorated the inside with a variety of die cuts. I'm honestly not sure about the dies used for the vases. I suspect they might be Spellbinders (definitely bronze coloured). The flowers were made using dies from Printable Heaven. The sentiment here (and the one on the front) are from a set which I think was Spellbinders too.
As you can see better in this picture, the vases and sentiment are designed to 'pop up' slightly when the card is open.
But everything folds together for posting. The hinges you see are part of the Marianne die set, and they definitely add to the strength of the design.
I do hope you can join us this time.
