Get in Shape for the Holidays

The official start of summer next week seems like the perfect time to get "in shape" at Jingle Belles, but luckily there's no diet or exercise required, we just want you to make a shaped card, by which we mean NOT a square or rectangle. Of course a fancy fold or some clever engineering (like an easel card, slider or pop-up) will also qualify. I went with an ornament-shaped card, based on a homemade template from a year or two ago.

I loved Prima's "Georgia Blues" collection from last year and I still have a bit left, such as that pretty paper with the white-on-white scrolls. The flowers I think are Petaloo, but they're old enough to just be in a jar with other ancient leftover flowers. The leaves are velvetty 7 Gypsies ones that my friend Elisabeth found in the basement of Paper Anthology, the seambinding is also from PA. The pearl flourish is from Want 2Scrap. I cut a base from dark blue cardstock to make this unusual shaped card, with its very small hinge, a little bit sturdier. But I also like how it sort of "outlines" the card!

Hop over to Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's shaped card and start planning what you'll make!
