I found the time to participate in the newest Caardvarks challenge, SHAPE UP. You can make anything as long as it isn't the usual square or rectangle. I needed to make a b-day card for a super cute 8 year old and this is what I came up with.
I used my cricut to cut the 8 out of black cardstock and then traced it onto white cardstock. I cut out the white cardstock so that it would be attached on the bottom left side to open like a card. Then I glued the white 8 on back of the black 8. I made tickets from Inkadinkado stamps, used making memories star brads, sweet life rub ons, american crafts ribbon, and the party hat came from Target years ago. This card is already on the way to CA!
I also wanted to give a BIG shout out to E.A.D. Designs. I received some of their new scrapbooking rub ons in the mail and they are HUGE! I can't wait to play with them. I guess I am used to rub ons for cards because I was expecting much smaller images but I am THRILLED with the designs and size of these rub ons. Really, go check it out HERE in their store. Oh and they also do wall vinyl. :)
