Well, it's amazing how quickly another fortnight has come around and it's time for another Crafty Ann's Challenge. This week the challenge is "shaped easel cards". I've done a number of easel cards but wasn't sure what shape to use. In the end I went for a long rectangle, curved the corners and then cut some scalloped squares on my new Cricut to make the shaped part of the card. I used one of my favourite embossed backing papers from Crafty Ann's, the embossed dots, as they didn't over-power everything else. I have used one of Crafty Ann's new digital images for a graduation and thought this would make a good card to go on the charity stall next week. The card is finished off with some ribbon, gold star brads, peel-off and some card card candy. Click here to go and have a look at all the other Design Team cards.
