DT - Shaped Cards - Labels Dies

Today's "DT Post Card"

For this weeks challenge it is to make shaped cards!!!!

I have to say, I have never been a fan of shaped cards, but I really had fun with this week's challenge.  I made a A2 card base and then used my labels spellbinders die to create the base.  I decided to use the next size down label die to cut out this yellow cardstock.  After that I used some papers from the same paper collection to cut the strip that went through the middle and the orange strip down the card.  I love this and it matches the shape perfectly because I used the die to cut the strips!

I got my image prepared and then cut it with a spellbinders circle die and then found a green that was similar to the apple leaf.  I cut that with an scalloped circle die to make a great layer.  I popped the whole piece up with pop dots to give some dimension off the card.  I next took more of the matching paper and stamped the sentiment (From Amy R's stamp (CC Designs) set now retired).  I put the sentiment up on pop dots as well to match the image height.  Lastly I had to add some sequins.  I used a mixture of sequins from my stash.  I placed them in a triangle from on the bottom right portion and then added two more to keep the odd numbers to the top left.  That finished up the card.  I really like this card.  It was truly a simple and fun card to make!

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Please check out the other DT members' projects!  Thanks so much for joining me for this Challenge over at Stamps & fun = Creativity!
