Day 5: Shaped Cards

Thanks for coming back for the last day of the Great Stamp Swap of 2010! The share for the last day was my idea, because I want to start using some of the wonderful shapes availible on my Silohuette. I have downloaded a few card kits, but I wanted to try and make my own card. This little girl is my first attempt, admittedly not perfect, but a good try none the less. Check it out:
{My card}
I welded a bracket frame to a rectangle and got this shape. The friends background is a free digi kit Hero Arts offered at at Two Peas here. I opened it in MS Word (using the tips I talked about here) and printed it out on my printer. Then I die cut it into a smaller bracket shape on my SIL. Love how that looked. I inked it a little with Distress Ink to make it pop, added a couple of flowers (layered) and, of course, a little bling. The inside says "thank you for your fiendship", another HA stamp. (note to self: do not use white core cardstock, even if you love the color, because you will see the core. hmpff.)

Check out how she made this little cutie on her blog.
I'm off to the Lakehouse for a girl's scrapbook weekend. So excited! What's on your agenda this weekend?
Later, Michelle
