My Craft Spot Challenge #45-Birthday Shaped Cards

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? I had a great weekend! I got to spend some time with the hubby and work at my crafty desk! Good times! I hope all of you had a fun filled weekend!

It's Monday and that means another fun challenge for you guys at My Craft Spot! Yay! This weeks challenge is Birthday Shaped Cards. I just love shaped cards! They are so fun to create and a bit different from the norm. The possibilities are endless. If you would like to see my fellow DT's shaped cards and check out how you can enter the challenge, go HERE. Of course, there is a prize up for grabs! Woot Woot! So check it out! We'd love to see what you can come up with!

For my card this week, I made a shaped card in the shape of a dog house. I used my Cricut and Gypsy to create this card. Of course I also added in lots of goodies from My Craft Spot. Here is what I came up with...

"Another Birthday?"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Bazzill Basics Paper, Core'dinations
Patterned Paper: Momenta
Stamps, Twine, Crinkle Ribbon: My Craft Spot
Rhinestones: Studio 18
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Cartridge: Create A Critter
Adhesive: Helmar, Zip Dry (Beacon Adhesives)
Other: craft knife, glass cutting mat
 As you can see below, the front 'door' of my dog house opens so you can sneak a peek inside at the dog and sentiment. To open the door, I used my craft knife and a glass cutting mat. I cut very carefully around the door. The glass mat underneath helped my blade to glide a bit more smoothly.
 I decorated around my door with some twine and rhinestones.
 I used some pink crinkle ribbon to do a double bow on the top of my dog house.
 For the inside, I stamped my sentiment using the 'Inside & Out #1' stamp set from My Craft Spot. I also added a little doggy. I just loved this dog! She's so cute! I gave her a bow with some bakers twine. I think I shall name her Pheobe. She just looks like a Pheobe to me! Tee hee!
I hope that you have enjoyed this project and that you will hop on over to My Craft Spot to join us in the challenge! See you there!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy Scrappin'!!!
