Shape it off

 Morning all.  We have a brand new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly today.  We would like to see your 'shaped' cards.  I was really impressed by all the entries on my challenge (at least 3 patterned papers) last month and I'm sure you will all rock this one too.  Shaped cards are always challenging for me.  I'm strictly a square or rectangle girl.  I rarely even do fun folds so where was I going to start with this one.  I started with my cricut.  If I needed a shape I wasn't confidant cutting it without help.  I found a circle card in the shape of a football and cut that as my base.  I also had a Football Circles digi stamp from LOTV already printed out.  I coloured the 'Goal' circle in rich deep colours...and totally messed it up.  In order to save it I cut out the word and stuck it to a circle in the middle of my base.

And that should have been it.  I couldn't leave it though.  It just wasn't finished.  I just kept looking at it and wanting something else.  I eventually added the two footballs from the other circles.  I don't completely love it but it looks more finished now.

I obviously need help with shaped cards so please enter and show me your inspiration.

Thanks for reading.

  5. This is such a great shaped card! I like the extra circle shapes that you added and like the main soccer ball image. I’m with you on this one...I’m more of rectangle/square gal myself, too!
