Shaped card - QKR Stampede Design Team card for Aug.18-25


This week, the challenge at QKR Stampede is to complete a shaped card.  I am not very good at free-hand cutting, so I opted to use Spellbinders Labels One dies - I actually used 3 different sizes.  You have an opportunity to win adorable QKR images - you can enter up to 3 times by 6 p.m. Thursday, August 25.  See details here:  QKR Stampede
I enjoy humorous cards, and these images are such fun!  The card front is QKR "Magic Card", and the inside is QKR "One Year Older",

I cut the image using the medium sized die.  Then I cut the next larger from a metallic blue.  My idea is that the metallic is a bit more magical!  The cutting is a bit different in that I folded the card stock, and left a narrow strip at the top attached.  You can see that I used a tie - mostly for embellishment.  I adhered the image to this blue layer - now there are three layers. I cut the card base using the largest of the Nesties.  I folded the card stock, smoothing the fold with a bone folder.  I then positioned the largest Nestie so that a but of the fold did not get cut.  (See the flattened edge of the left  photo.)  In the left photo you can see the outline of the white card base.  I added a bit of  border faux stitching in gold.  By placing both images on the outside of the base, I have left the inside available for a sentiment or note.

I colored with a blue Prisma and metallic gold pen.  Some glitter was added to the edge - more magic dust!
