Hello out there in bloggy world!!!!! Courtney Lee from Court’s Crafts here with a fun shaped card! I canNOT believe that in 5 months of being on this team I have not made a shaped card yet. I loved shaped cards. I feel ashamed. ;) Let me make it up to you!
I started out with this design from Echo Park Paper’s Silhouette cut files. Did you know that EP makes Silhouette cut files to correspond with their paper lines?!? love.
I made the file fatter and sized it to something that would fit inside of an A2 sized envelope. I then put a shadow around it. I found the tutorial on how to do that here. Then I copied and pasted and flipped the image. I put them back to back making sure to have the exact same y axis numbers so that they matched up perfectly. I copied and pasted the image one more time so I could paste it on top of my shaped card base so it wouldn't have the folded left edge, but would instead look like a full glass. Then I welded the two card base images.
Next I separated out the image and put it in four quadrants. I knew I wanted to cut them all at the same time to save time so I used my 6x6 paper pad. :) I also cut the straw 3 times for strength as I did not make it part of my original card base.
Once everything is cut out I inked around the edges of the yellow, pink, and green layers.
I then glued down the white “liquid” and applied glossy accents to it. Tip: It’s important to glue it down first as applying glossy accents can make the edges curl up.
Put foam adhesive on the back of the yellow dot layer. Tie the raffia ribbon around the stem of the lemonade glass and adhere to card base.
Put glossy accents on the accent piece and around the rim of the glass and put chunky glitter on it. Allow to dry. Glue on the straw. Add a pennant and put the Sunshine chipboard on top of it.
Add foam adhesive to the back of a flower sticker and add it to the pennant. Finish with putting glossy accents on the leaves.
What shape would YOU like to make into a card?
