Hat Card


I got hooked on innovative shaped cards ever since I got my Silhouette machine. Here is another cute card in the shape of a lady’s hat that I designed in the Studio. I was looking at a card on the Splitcoast Stampers site which led me to the blog of Cathleen, http://crookedcardcreations.com,. I enjoyed viewing her cards! They are so beautiful and elegant. Her hat card caught my attention and I took interest in making the card right away as she had the template. But much to my disappointment, it was a hand drawn template and it was just impossible to trace it in Studio as the lines were not clean enough. I ended up creating the template in Studio from scratch. The card is really a very simple cut. I’m quite pleased with what I came up with. I thought it’s just cute and adorable.

 I designed a new bow by accident, LOL! I was trying to make something else but was struggling to keep its shape and ended up with this one. I just love it! I took a close up shot so you can figure it out. It's just a layer of four folds of ribbon then spread out. I stitched the bow to keep the folds in place.
 
I enjoy seeing other people’s work, most especially cards that were made from my free templates so please send me a photo of the cards that you have created.

As most of you are aware, my free templates are now exclusive to my followers on my blog. Although some of you have already signed up as a follower on my blog, a lot of members do not have any link on their profile and unless you leave your e-mail address on your comment, I have no way of sending the file to you. So please, do not forget to leave your e-mail address on your comment.


Update: here is another Hat Card.

    Gayle,
    I absolutely LOVE this hat card and your idea for the bow was awesome. I'm usually not a black and white person but I loved the way these colors added class and elegance to your card.
    Well done. If you are giving the file, I would sure appreciate having it.
