Lexi's Creations......A Shaped Card...

Hi Susan here.....

Today at Lexi's Creations we are beginning a brand new challenge and oh boy this is a good one to have a go at.....A SHAPED CARD, this means of course non of the usual square or rectangle ones, so get your thinking caps on and call across to Lexi's Creations Blog and join in the fun with us. You will find all the information about the challenge and plenty of inspiration from the design team, wow you will want to see their work its amazing!!

Our Sponsor this time is Letraset and they give as always a fabulous prize to the winner.

Now onto my card....

I love these pop-up cards, and this is definately NOT a square or rectangle card. I love the folds and the fact that the card folds down flat and fits into a 5x5 square envelope great for putting in the post. But its the diamond shape on the front that is really eye catching, and requires nothing to keep it standing up.

I have used Bearlymine digi paper and printed direct onto the card so that the pattern went all over the card, these are beautiful designs and well worth calling across and getting some for yourself.

My flowers are from Hobby Craft and as usual my ribbon and gems are from our local market.
The sentiment die is from Tickled Pink but I slightly altered it after it was cut, the sentimet is my own made on the computer.

The gorgeous image has been designed by Lexi herself and is available from Fairy Dust Crafts, the image is called Happy Birthday Scruffles. I used promarkers to colour it in.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card and for all your wonderful comments
Love Susan
