This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we were asked to do a card with any shape other than square or rectangle. I have been dying to use the adorable Knight outfit for my Boo for You bear die so I designed a castle shaped card using Cricut Design Studio and the Doodlecharms cartridge.
I used Tim Holtz's grunge paper for the castle which is thinner than grunge board but still really flexible and cuts and embosses like a dream. I embossed the castle walls with the Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug folder and the turret roofs with Diamonds in the Rough. They were inked and sponged with distress and chalk inks and metallic acrylic paint daubers and popped for dimension. Boo is and his outfit are dies from GoKreate, a UK company available in the U.S. at The Scrapping Cottage. "Celebrate"is an adhesive metallic sentiment I found in the $ bin at M's. It was so great creating a card for a male that wasn't a chore. LOL
Inside I used the Cuttlebug die from the Birthday Wishes combo with the knight's sword for the exclamation point. It just so happens that the Caardvark's challenge is "Good Knight" a fantasy theme. I think this fills the bill. Be sure to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot to see the other wonderful shaped cards my Design Team sisters have created and please come and play along.
