FCCB-Shaped Card Challenge #261



 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #261-Shape Up
Make a Shaped Card (anything but a square or rectangle)

This Weeks Sponsor
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For this challenge, it is for a shaped card, therefore no extra chances of winning.

Here is my card-
 

Here is a list of materials-
  1. Cricut Cartridge: Create a Critter 2, Winter Owl (cut at 7").
  2. Cardstock: Dark Green, Dark Red, Beige, Tan, and Brown from my stash. (The next one I make will have cute patterned paper for the hat and scarf!)
I chose an image that had a shadow feature so the card base wouldn't have layering cuts. I cut the card base in the color I want.  After assembling the card front, it's ready to be joined to the base. I score the base where I want my "hinge" to be, then put adhesive on the hinge and bend it backwards so it won't touch the card front. Next I line up the base and card front how I want, then fold the hinge up and tightly press to the front. Now the pieces are perfectly matched and the card is done!

Thanks for stopping by!
