DDSC #71 - Shaped Card

Back again - as promised!!

Right then, this week at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges we want you to make a shaped card - round, rocker, concertina, oval. easel - the choices are endless.

I chose to make a tunnel card using one of my favourite Digi Doodle Shop images - Carousel Horse. I coloured the image, cut it out, attached it to some acetate and sandwiched it between the front and back of the card. 

The front has been stamped and the sides and inside back covered with dotty paper. The flags were a freebie digi which I have attached with some photo thingys (sorry can't remember what you call them!) and brads. 

Confession - I stamped the front twice - messed it up the first time so had to turn it over and re-do it (with much trepidation 'cos if I messed it up again, I didn't have another white card to use - lol)

Once the card was stuck together, I punched four holes down either side, attached eyelets and threaded some ribbon through them. I also attached some ribbon to the top of the carousel but this does not show up too well in the photo I'm afraid. The sentiment was coloured and printed on the computer.....and there you have it. I love this card and hope you do too :0)

The rest of the brilliant DT have made some gorgeous and varied shaped cards too so do take a look and join us for this fun challenge. Don't forget that if you use a Digi Doodle Shop image, you get a second entry into the challenge and also, there is a fab special offer going on in the shop for this month - details in the side bar.
