Shaped Card

Today I am able to share a card with you....

I stumbled upon a wonderful website that offers beautiful sheets and kits at unbelievably low prices so just had to buy - and didnt know when to stop - but then when a site offers up to 3 sheets in a set for just 50p and 4 or more for just 75p why bother to stop? Crafts You Print and the like charge 80p for JUST ONE SHEET!!!

Check out this site
 but be warned, you will find it difficult to just walk away with out buying - and if you do buy please leave a note for Lyn saying you found her through a link on my blog!!

Back then to todays card - as the title suggests, this is a shaped card and I loved it!!!

I printed the sheet then used Crafters Companion Stick & Stay (RED CAN) to stick the paper to a sheet of cardstock, then cut around the outside of the design

Next I scored down the score line and folded before cutting out the centre white bits, then edged the whole design using a magenta pro marker which matched the inner lines of the card.

The decoupage was tricky to cut in places like inside the cup handles and teapot handle but it was worth taking the time to do

The pieces were then shaped on the foam mat using the shaping tool and then added to the design after using pinflair silicone glue

Once all the layers were added I  used the quickie glue pen to write around the printed Happy Birthday, the flowers and the dots on the teapot edge then sprinkled with glamour dust.

Tiny aqua blue gem stones were stuck to the cake topping using pinflair glue....while a large purple stone was used on the teapot lid.

To finish this lovely card I used a mix of small, medium and large purple self adhesive gemstones in all corners of the card.

As yet there is no insert added mainly due to having to use my old PC which wont take my new printer software - so thats my first job once my PC is up and running again
