Pumpkin Shape Card

     I decided to try something a little different with this sketch. How would it look if all of the sketch elements were placed on a shape card? Here is the sketch from Sketch N Scrap for the World Card Making event. 

WCMD 2017 Sketch #3
      As you can see, I did twist the rectangle a bit and added some bling. I used one sheet of Moxie: Autumn Glory paper. It had a distress look with a collage of flower and swirls in the corner. I don't think this is the sheet of paper a card maker usually grabs. Not only did I use this paper for the pumpkin, but I also stamped the sunflower and "Happy Fall" onto it as well. The mat behind the sentiment is a quasi-solid that was the reverse side of the paper. The strip of leaves - well that was the border at the bottom of the sheet. (BTW: I haven't used the prefix quasi- for quite some time. I double checked the meaning and spelling to make sure I was using it correctly. It means almost.)

     For the inside of the card, I used the corner of the patterned paper. I feel like I used this sheet of paper to the max. There was barely any left.

  1. You might have twisted the rectangle but boy you sure made a wonderful card design. I love your shaped card that looks like a pumpkin. Awesome work!

  2. This is so super cute. I love how you changed this up!!

  3. This is very clever! I totally see how you used the sketch, but it is very different too. Great idea!
