INTAAS - Shaped Card

Come along and join us in the challenge theme of 'Shaped card' - no squares or rectangles as set by DT member Christina over at International Art and Soul.

Gone are the days when I would make easel cards, stepper cards and all the other various shapes. I stick to squares usually but now and again, very rarely, I push the boat out and make an oval, lol This is one such time - sorry Christina, not very creative.

My card blank was a 7x7 by Craft UK which I cut with a Spellbinders grand oval to make this card. I used a Papermill bright pink card as the base mat and then a pretty pale pink paper with white polka dots, from Simply Cards & Papercraft, on top of that before adding the image of the elegant lady, This is from one of Joanna Sheen's CDs which is called Dancing with Shadows I used Spellbinder scalloped ovals to cut the polka dot paper and the image before adding to the mat. The black and pearl gems are from Hobbycraft and I set those at an angle across the left edge.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
A Place To Start - Pick a Shape
Country View - Silhouettes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes


  1. Lovely shape Hazel. I love the elegant silhouette/cameo. So regal. I started out by making a circular card and then remembered this set of dies so went off in a different direction. So I have a round card half made for another time. Take care. Christine x

  2. This is so pretty. I love pink and black together. You created a piece that looks vintage but it modern. Have a nice Sunday.

  3. Hi Hazel this is a gorgeous card. I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie
