Weekly Challenge #14: Getting In Shape!According to polls, “getting in shape” is among the Top Ten Resolutions people make each New Year’s Eve. Let’s do it! Let’s start the New Year off right by getting in shape . . . a shape other than a rectangle. We challenge you to create a project in a shape other than a square or rectangle. Your project must also include a number somewhere and bling of some kind (to go along with this week’s theme of “Blinging in the New Year”!
One of my little niece's birthday is coming up in about a week and a half so I decided to make a card now since I have the time and she so loves Hello Kitty and purple (just like my daughter)! I have had the Hello Kitty Greetings and Hello Kitty Font cartridges for maybe almost a year and a half now and have never really attempted to use either one, except maybe for the font. The card I made ended up being 5.56 tall (yeah, that was kind of weird sizing but that's how it ended up since I wanted everything to fit in a 12 x 12 mat on my G). I used the Hello Kitty Greetings cart for the card function along with its layers. I found that the best way (for me at least) to assemble this card was to also cut out the silhouette feature along with the blackout feature for the base of the image. This way you can kind of see where all the little pieces should fall in after cutting. Hope the picture below shows what I'm talking about. The blackout and the silhouette cuts are both cut in black cardstock so it may be hard to see, but believe me it makes it so much more easier to piece cuts together.
