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.
