3CT - Ship Shape Challenge #15


Hello and Welcome to the latest addition of Three Clover Thursday Design Challenge. This week our theme was,
"Ship Shape! - Shaped Cards, No Squares or Rectangles.
Now I must admit that making shaped cards is not my specialty and in fact I have a hard time thinking outside the box when it comes to shaped cards.

As luck would have it I was browsing through the latest addition of Paper Crafts magazine - and happened upon a cute package card that was made by Wendy Johnson (See Page 45) July/August 09 and thought, "Hey there's something that I can actually handle. Okay I know it's not rocket science to make a shaped card but some days my creative Mojo just isn't up to tackling something more daring then your standard card size. Now I will admit this is sort of "cheating" in that the card is square to a point but with the addition of the package top it now becomes something other then just a square card.

I pretty much cased the entire idea except for changing papers, ribbons and stamps. Anyway I like how it turned out and hope you do as well.

Details: Card Base - Whisper White layered with DP (Imaginisce - Dotted pattern) and (Paper Salon - Floral pattern, Certainly Celery for scallop and sentiment.
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Prisma Colored Pencils for the Flower blended with Gamsol
Stamps: Flower (Source Unknown)ETA - Flower Stamp from Impression Obsession and Papertrey Ink-Sentiment
Ribbon: Chocolate Chip Grosgrain SU
