Go Fly a Kite

It's a shaped card challenge this week on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog. Any shape for your card base except a rectangle or a square that is. The DT is off to great start with fun and different challenges this year.

When I found the The Frugal Crafter site with the instructions for the beach pail card, I also found a blog post where she had made a kite card. The instructions for it came from Qbee's Quest. I added some length and some width to mine, but I kept the 2 1/2" from the center fold.

Again, it was seeing the card and in an instant knew the perfect image for the card. This cutie from the Phindy's Place Store is called High Hopes. Isn't he just the cutest thing all bundled up in his jacket and hoodie? I've colored him with Copics.

As usual the papers are digital that I printed on my HP large format printer. I wouldn't have been able to make the card as big if it weren't for the fact that I could print 11 x 17 cardstock. I was also able to print on both sides for the inside and outside of the card. This kit is called Denim and Daisies and is from Just So Scrappy Too. I just used Word to print the sentiment.  Here's the inside of the card.

I'm liking this shaped challenge and even have a third card done. Thanks for stopping by.
