So Saturday Challenges #11 - Shaped Card

I was inspired to make this card from a challenge that is running over at http://cardcreationsbyc.blogspot.com/

Shaped Squirrel Love Card - Front

This card I made using the Cindy Loo cartridge, I don't have a Gypsy so I actually had to make it the old fashioned way by attaching the 2 pieces together.  I used the Shadow feature of the squirrel shape on page 62 and cut it twice at 5" for the card base layer, which I of course attached together at the edges.  I scored the back layer at 7/8" on the far right hand side of card.  After I used my bone folder to crease the fold line I then placed adhesive to the left of the score line and then lined up the two shapes and adhered them together.  I then cut all of the remaining layers of the squirrel all cut at 5".  I then layered and adhered them all together.  I adhered the completed Squirrel to the front of card base.  I found an acrylic embellishment in my stash and adhered that to the front.  Such a fun cute card the could be cut in such a variety of colors.  I used Brown for the base and some pretty pink and brown flower paper and a solid pink paper from OTC.
Shaped Squirrel Love Card - Inside

On the inside of the card I used a cut from using the Just Because cards cartridge.  On page 63 I used the Stencil feature and cut using the same solid pink paper from the front of the card.  I inked the edges of the oval with Walnut Stain Ink and then adhered to the inside of my card.
