Shape It Up

The challenge this week on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog it to create a shaped card that is not a rectangle or a square. Oh for the possibilities. I have some shaped card files in my SVG folders, but decided I do a Google of shaped cards. I happened upon the The Frugal Crafter's blog and found a free template for a beach pail.

Needless to say, when I saw the pail, the image from the Phindy's Place Store that popped into my mind immediately was Summer Bare. I've colored her with Copics.

I used my Black Cat Cougar to cut the card, handle and scoop. The papers are digital and from two kits Aloha and Pool Party by Just so Scrappy Too. I used my MTC software to create the Word Art .

This was a fun card to do, and while I was over on the The Frugal Crafter site, I found another great shaped card. Off to work on a second card.


  1. Oh my gosh, this is brilliant Shirley! I never would have thought of a pail shaped card (got to check out those templates). The image is perfect with the pail and the colors are bright and fun. Great creation. Thanks for joining us at Phindy's Place this week.

  2. This is too stinkin' cute Shirley!!! Can't wait to see the next one. ~jeni :)
