Tuesday Throwdown - Shaped Cards

Morning Peeps.  It time for another challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown.  The theme this week is Shaped Cards.   It's going to require a little more effort for some of you and some will have to think out of the box.  There are so many different shapes, other than the usual rectangle, square and circle.  Why not try your hand at a fancy fold card.  You can find a lot of them if you just google fancy fold cards.  Splitcoast Stampers has several too.

In order to put up a tree, you need a tree, right?  So Mr. Mousie went in search of the perfect tree.  I used the digi "Putting up a Tree."  You can find the digi here at our sponsor, Robyn's Fetish, for this challenge.  You can also find lots more cute stamps at the site.

I used a double easel design for my card.  It is not as difficult as it looks.  Google Double Easel Card.  That's what I did.  All I had to do was to follow the pictures and adjust the size as it was in metric.  I just decided how big I wanted my finished card and went from there.

Supplies used:
Bo Bunny 12x12 Winter Joy Snow Angels (I used both sides)
Stampin Up cardstock
Copic markers
Ice White Pearl Pen
Glossy Accents
Silhouette snowflake file
Sweet and Sassy sentiment

Challenges: Christmas Joy Cut It Out Use Patterned Paper
