FCCB #261 - Shape Up!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #261-Shape Up
Make a Shaped Card (anything but a square or rectangle)

This Weeks Sponsor
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

And, if you submit a project in our challenge that isn't a card, you will get two entries for a chance to win the prize instead of one!

For my project I've used the Pumpkin Card from the Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge, a Basket from the Art Philosophy cartridge and leaves from the Creative Bug cartridge, all cut with the Cricut Explore. I also added the scroll cuts and sentiments from the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Fall Phrases SVG files.

I stamped and heat embossed with a scroll stamp using gold embossing powder on the base layer of the card. Then, I ran the top layer through an embossing folder in my Cuttlebug and gently sanded it to highlight the embossing detail.

I changed the scoring feature to 'Write' on the leaves and used an American Crafts white chalkboard pen to draw in the veins on the leaves. I added my PPPR sentiment inside the card and some scrolls and leaves to my card and box. I thought this box would be nice as a Thanksgiving table decoration!

On the opposite side of the box I added another sentiment and leaf.

Here's a look at what's included in the PPPR Fall Phrases Cutting Files:
