Fabulous Friday - Shaping Up

Helllo my friends.  Itttt's FRIDAY!  Yay :-)

How is everyone? Have you all had a great week?  My weeks seem to be just flying by and I don't know where the time is going!

Anyways, we have a new challenge starting over at Polkadoodles and our theme for this fortnight is your Favourite Card Shape - basically if it's your fave shape you can enter the challenge :-)

Now I wasn't really thinking of favourite shape but my favourite fold - so I ended up make a Z Fold card.  It's still a shape right?!  And it's rectangle which is a shape too LOL!

I used the fabulous Winston Deluxe Papercrafting Collection for my card.  All the papers and images are from this fabulous collection.

This is Etty in her new dress and she is also available as a single digi download for you to colour yourself.  I used the pre-coloured image off one of the design sheets, in this fabulous collection.

I absolutely couldn't resist adding this fabulous Floral Spray Charm from Emerald Creek - to my finished card.  All I did was snip off the little link and secured it to my card with my glue gun.

I inked all the edges of all the layers on my card with CTMH Sorbet.  I even used a Fiskars Decorative Corner rounder on all the backing paper base layers.

I also used the Spellbinders Labels 10 dies for my layer under Etty, and the inside layers of the message panel.

Isn't she adorable.  Etty is layered up a little, to add some extra depth to the card.

Now it is over to you.  Any card shape will fit the theme :-)  So pop along to Polkadoodles and enter the challenge.  You have until Noon GMT, Friday, 9th October to enter.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Simply Papercraft - Challenge #14: Anything Goes (closes 9 Oct)

Creative Fingers Challenges - Challenge #94: Anything Goes (closes 2 Oct)

Happy crafting.


  1. So pretty, Karon. Love the colors on this CD. She is the cutest bear in her new dress. Adding all the layers makes your work so special. The metal bits you add are really pretty.

  2. That is the coolest fold! Although your last post on metal was a pretty groovy fold too. I think it would be hard to pick just one favorite. I do however, REALLY love the many layers and turns of this one. It's a thing of beauty what you created. :)
    Happy weekend, Karon :)

  3. That really is your favorite shape, because you make such pretty things with it. Pretty card, she's lovely in her new dress! Got the mojo really humming! Keep it up, Karon.

  4. Beautiful card. Love all the layering, the papers and that adorable little bear.
    Have a creative day.
