I decided to make a shaped card using two digis from Get Inky! Stamps (Stitched Heart Bunny and Backside Bunny) from our sponsor Blue Moon Creation and stamps from their Sew Sweet Cupcakes set. The generous prize is a 3 month club membership (includes one newsletter, 9 digital images, 3 go to sketches)!
The card measures 7.5" x 4.5" and can stand by itself. This is my first shaped card made with digis and I quite like how it came out! Instead of cutting out the entire top bunny, I left a small tab at the top to attach the two bunnies to make the card. Since the coloring bleeds through the cardstock and I wanted to add a sentiment, I traced the cut out backside bunny onto plain white cardstock to provide a clean area for stamping. Using a combination of BMC sentiment stamps and masking techniques I created the greeting Hoppy Birthday. Then I assembled the card and using the xyron 9" creative station I applied adhesive to the bunny with the sentiment and layered the pieces to complete the card cleanly without the tab showing. I also decided to apply adhesive to stick the ears together (after the fact) because it gave the card a more uniform look as it opens and closes.
I hope you enjoyed this post and will consider joining in on this month's challenge.
