Inkspirational: Shaped Cards

Happy weekend! We are introducing a new challenge category today at Inkspirational: technique challenges! And we are starting off with a fun one, SHAPED cards. Of course all cards have to have a shape, but we're looking outside the traditional rectangles or squares. Mine is takeout coffee shaped!

I got the idea and basic measurements for this from a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers. There's a local coffee shop where I live that uses bright green lids, so that inspired my colour choices. I could have used one of my saved coffee sleeves (yes, I have a few) but embossed some kraft cardstock instead.  

On the Ink blog, you'll find cards of all shapes and sizes! ;) Hope we've inspired you to join us. 

Supplies: Neenah white & desert storm & scrap green cardstock, Lawn Fawn My Cup of Tea & STAMPlorations Literary Caffeine-ations stamps, Versamark, Versafine onyx black, Memento London fog & Catherine Pooler garden party inks, Wow clear gloss embossing powder, Sizzix/Tim Holtz Pinwheel embossing folder, MFT double stitched rectangle die

Pin It Now!

Crushing over your fabulous coffee shaped card. The textured sleeve and green lid are perfect touches!

I never though along these lines and went for a die cut shaped card. This is so cool, looks really ecological in green and kraft, which is a great color combo too!

Shaped cards are such fun, and I never think to do them...even though I have some dies that would make it so easy. Your coffee cup is really perfect.
