RI DCC Shaped Card Challenge

It's another Designer Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, and Rock Star Maki is challenging us (and you!) to make a shaped card. Something other than a square or A2 size card- use your imagination and create a fun shaped card for a chance at some great Repeat Impressions rubber! Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the shaped cards designed by the other Rock Stars.

For my card, I started with this beautiful Rose Heart Wreath stamped on a white card. Then I cut it out with the largest scalloped heart nestie leaving a small part uncut for the fold of the card. I colored the roses and leaves with my copics and cut out the center of the heart with a smaller scalloped heart nestie. Then I embossed the front of the heart card with my favorite embossing (Cuttlebug) folder. I did a little sponging and stamped a Repeat Impressions sentiment on the inside of the card.

I am entering this card in the "Red, White and one other Color" challenge at Paper Pretties and the challenge at The Cutie Pie Challenge to use a sentiment.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Fabulous, Karen! I love that it opens from the side. For some reason, I always want to open "shaped" cards from the top. Who would ever believe this is a one-layer card - awesome!
