Shapely Chicks

Shapely...as in card shapes *wink*

Julia challenged us to think outside our norm....it was almost painful! lol...but then I remembered a card Joanne had done using the Writer's Block Backgrounder *grin*

This is also a Sneak Peek at a fabulous set from Mona Lisa called Invitation Essentials which will be available this week on the 23rd, and another one, Frosty Friends, available tomorrow the 21st at Cornish Heritage Farms.

I also managed to combine it with a challenge I do with some friends on SCS...to make a Suspension Card with a Winter or Christmas theme. You can see all my friend's cards here. <------ and the tutorial here <------


I only inked the edges of Writer's Block then trimmed close to the brackets. The image is colored with Copic markers and snowy highlights with Inkssentials white gel pen and a white Souffle gel pen. The Art Glitter Faux Snow is glued with Glossy Accents.

The inside has Magic Paper, you know that kind when you make a mistake and have to cover it up somehow?....yeah...that's Magic Paper! I'm too honest....lol
Ok, so I got in a hurry, didn't use my stamp positioner and stamped crooked! I just stamped the Writer's Block on a folded piece of cardstock (that gave me two), this time cutting inside the brackets, then took my red marker and ran it around the egde. *wink*


I also only inked up "Date, Time, Place & RSVP" because I didn't need "For". The title is part of Warm Hearts that goes with the image and Party from Invitations Essentials!
The left hand side is Cuttlebugged with Snow Dots.

And there you have it my friends! Now, to see what "shape" the other Chicks are in, just click on each name to go to their blog.

Did you call Kim and let her know what shape to make? How funny! Great minds think alike -- and I would definitely love to be in the same mindset as you two! Great card!
