A Shaped Card to Start the Month of August


The Die Cut Divas August challenge has started and the challenge is to make a shaped card and I'm so happy to be making Shaped Cards with Poppystamps products, not rectangle or square cards, but any kind of Shaped Cards.

Challenge prize: winner gets $20 gift card to the store.

I couldn't help myself. I had to use glitter paper for this card and oh, does it sparkle. After I die-cut the bare trees out of silver, I thought they faded into the sky, but thought they might still work. This easel card stands more upright than the Bird House so you do need something to lean the card against to make it stand upright. I really do love this globe. Who doesn't love a snow globe? There are so many ways to use the dies that come with this set. I used every die in this set, but you don't have to. A yellow marker on the white base of the house makes the windows bright with light.
