This week's challenge from Dare U 2 digistamp is a shape card - not square. Well unless the card is square I find myself struggling to make something that will at least manage to stand up! After trialling a few ideas I found this digistamp from the Greeting Farm which I had from their recent birthday bash - and boy does he make a super shaped card - quick, simple and oh so easy.

I printed Ian on cardstock, folded it just along his head, cut around the shape, leaving a piece at the bottom, so the card would stand, and there it was a shaped card! I have watercoloured Ian, and the sentiments came from the Popcorn the bear stamp sets, Party Time and a Gift for You. This would also make a super birthday invite too.....having said that Ethan has been planning his - only nine months in advance!

Just a quick post today before football club and school meeting. I made five of these cards all the same for five teenagers who are all going to be sixteen at the end of the month. The image is Pretty Head Lily from the Greeting Farm. I have water coloured her, added some aqua glitter to her eyelids, woodware daisy punch flowers and a flat back pearl in her hair. The black and white paper was a free download, raspberry card which has been dry embossed with the ultimate pro from Crafters companion and black ribbon. The circular sentiment was done on the computer and the Lets Celebrate sentiment is from Popcorn the Bear party time stamp set.
