House of Cards February Challenge: Shape Cards


Happy February everyone! I hope those of you who had to struggle through winter storm Jonas fared well. It was awesome that it was on a weekend and I did not have to worry about getting into work, loosing my parking space and missing school. It is surprising how quickly it is melting, another blessing.

Anyway the challenge this month at House of Cards is to create a shaped card. No squares- do something fun! Get creative! I know you all have it in you. Stretch your wings.



For me- all I can say is thank God for all those amazing dies out there. I used a die that I got Christmas of 2015 and never used at all!! It got mixed up with a bunch of other dies and it was outta sight outta mind.

When I was thinking about the challenge I remembered this set from Papertrey Ink. I used the die and the stamp set. Because it is February, I had to go with a Valentine theme. George- my guy is a serious tea drinker, so he will be getting this card and and some special tea to go with it for the big day.

This challenge can send you in a million directions, check out what the other designers have done this month at the House of Cards!

Just gorgeous Sue! I really struggled with this one and was so happy when I finally located some shaped cards in my stash. After seeing the rest of the DT creations I have several ideas for when I need to create another shaped card Karen x
