There's a new challenge at Dilly Beans: Shaped Cards. No squares or rectangles, ya hear? Megan also has a fabulous assortment of adorable new digi gals at the Dilly Beans Shop and I've used one of my faves, #592 Aidynn's Winter Hat Framed. EEEK! Isn't her hat the cutest? I'm sort of embarrased not too have used my Cricut here, but I've had sort of a block lately,after years and years of doing elaborate shaped cards. Instead I pulled out my Nesties Grands and my cool Stampin' Up Festive Flurry stamp and die cut set and went to town. That beautiful jewel is Stampin' Up, too. The wire ribbon is from my stash and I'll tell you a little tip if you want to use ribbon for a sentiment as I did here. Tape your ribbon to a strip of card stock before cutting the ends to length and it will be easier to cut, you'll avoid fraying, and it will be easier to adhere with tape or foam to whatever project you choose.
We've had an unseasonably warm and dry Winter here in CA, but I know many of you have been bombarded by snow and frigid temps. That was my inspiration this week and I even finished the inside of my card, just for you. HUGS!
Oh, and one last thing. Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog to see some of the newest Dilly Beans in action...sooo stinkin' CUTE!!!!! And if you act fast (like I mean TODAY!) you can get them 2 for one. Hurry! Don't miss it!
