My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 180 Shaped Cards

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Saturday! Today begins a new fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Our talented Sheri is hosting Challenge 180 - Shaped Cards! She asked that we create a shaped card--anything but a square or rectangle shape card. For my project, I have used some of my favorite Cricut images. Patterned papers are K&Company and the solid papers are from the scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
A Child's Year - Tea Party Card is cut 8.50" x 6.04" from the pretty patterned paper.
Spring Fling - Flower is cut 2.75" wide. This cartridge includes the drawing around the image. I used the Cricut Midnight pen. I really like the drawing feature on this cartridge.
Splendid Soiree - Bow Label is cut 1.00 wide.

I added a little bling by using a gold trim that was found in my stash of goodies.

Be sure to visit My Sheri Crafts to see all the pretty shaped cards made by the design team. For more information, visit the individual blogs. Now it is your turn to play along with us. Several Ooh la la awards will be given and one person will be selected to be our next guest designer. We look forward to seeing your pretty shaped cards.

Thanks for your visits and comments!
