#199 Dream Valley challenge – shaped cards

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge! Our sponsor for this challenge is Star Stampz.

For this shaped card challenge I chose to make a an octagonal easel card. This shape gave me an opportunity to use my stamping plate and twist the card for each impression of the swirls, but I only line the stamp up once. This is something I’ve been meaning to try for ages but not had chance. Perfect alignment – I was very happy with my first attempt!

I created the shaped card on my scan n cut machine by welding two octagons together. I also cut a further single octagon for the base layer of the front of the card along with two smaller octagons for the topper and the mat below it. The image was coloured with Chameleon pens and the ink around the edges of the card was a distress oxide ink.
