SHAPING-up for the Holidays

Since this prompt finds us half-way to Christmas, we figured it was a good time to start SHAPING-Up for the Holidays.  

What that means is we're making shaped cards … anything other than a square or rectangle will do.  You might try a circle, star, stocking, candy cane ... we can't wait to see your SHAPE of Christmas creativity.

Here's how we SHAPED-up this week:

Stephanie say, "I have no idea how long I've had this never-before-used Jolly Santa Shaped Gift Card Holder die cut set from Crafter's Companion, but it was certainly well past time to give it a go.  Rather than just use cardstock for my Santa, I created my own papers on my GelliArts Press for the face/nose and the red (with a tiny bit of gold paint mixed in) for Santa's outfit.  I added gold metallic paper for Santa's belt.  This will be a fun little way to share some gift card love for the holiday."

Lauren says, "I used the second largest bauble in an older set of older Hero Arts Ornaments Infinity Dies to diecut this charming, vintage-inspired Santa from Prima's Candy Cane Lane collection, then traced and handcut a few additional layers to make a slightly larger and sturdier card. I used Wendy Vecchi's brilliant "hinge" method to add another diecut piece to the back (with a crease scored at 3/4" from the top before affixing) and thus make this into a card that actually opens!* A few Impression Obsession diecut snowflakes, a seambinding bow and a scatter of golden star sequins complete the design."
