SU LateNightStampers Challenge/Shape Up


Good Monday morning to all of you!  As you know we have our weekly challenge starting today over at SULateNightStampers and this week it is to make a card using a different shape than typical rectangle or square.  How great is that and especially now that we have the new framelits.  So this is the card I for today's challenge. This is another inspiration from Stamping 411 sketch that I used this week!  Just made it portrait instead of landscape!

I actually cut the base of the card out using very vanilla card stock as you will see in a few with the side view.  I then cut the same size again with the pool party card stock, ran it through the bigshot with the perfect polkadots embossing folder and adhered it to the front over the very vanilla so you would not see the little bit of square at the top to make sure you have your fold.  Hope you understand what I just said!  lol  Actually as you can see I used 3 different sizes of the framelits to make this card!

Here is the side view of the card!


I even used two sizes on the inside and sponged the edge of the smaller one.  Just seemed to add a little more support to the backside of the card!

Hope you like this and if you would like to join us this week, just pop on over to our SULateNightStampers site and check us out.
