Shape Up - Penny Black @ Allsorts

The challenge this month at Penny Black @ Allsorts is to Shape Up!!  You could use any card shape except square or rectangle.  I was going to make some scalloped circle cards with my nesties but then I remembered I had some card blanks that I had found when sorting out some really old stash.  They had come in one of those huge bumper boxes of Kanban stuff from QVC and must had been purchased over 6 years ago when I first started cardmaking.  So I challenged myself to see what I could do with them. 

The little bunnies were on a long stamp so I carefully cut out the individually images.  I covered the card blank with some papermania paper that was another one of my early misguided craft purchases.  The little daisies were punched from an ek success flower punch and the centres were punched using a cropadile.

A close up of the stamped images -

The mats behind the images were punched with an SU punch and then embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The sentiments are Hero Arts. 

I enjoyed using a different shape card blank for a change and have made a second card for the challenge which I will share in another blog post.
