Shaped Cards with Happileigh Scrappin'

for my Kaboodle Doodles post, please click here.

Happileigh Scrappin' is asking everyone this week to create some kind of shaped card or one that uses special folds. well when I read this, I went straight to my box of chipboard to see what kind of neat shapes I could find. I do like to make cards with them every once in a while, so pick up the chipboard albums when I see them at the craft stores. don't think I have yet made an actual album with one yet! ;) maybe some day.......




Being a Texas girl, this cute set of cowboy boots appealed to me, so out came the chipboard star. I covered the star with bandana paper from Flair Designs. I am sure it has long been retired, but you could probably find something similar at your local craft store. the paper was sanded to roughen it a bit, then sponged with vanilla craft ink. the edges of the star were also covered in the same ink. A star was punched from a handy dandy Starbucks coffee holder & then inked with the vanilla craft. buttons, some black yarn, and finally that wonderful red gingham ribbon were added to complete this project.


I do hope you will play along with us this week at Happileigh Scrappin'. Leigh has some adorable new images that she has just released and a cute clock that is free with any digi purchase. Buy 3 images from the store and you can choose ANY image for free as well. isn't that a great deal? Challenge winners also receive free images from Happileigh Scrappin', so what are you waiting for? Head over to the blog to see the AMAZING DT creations. then get busy crafting! :)
