Shaped Cards - Day 1

Good morning.

We've got a fun week of projects to share.  It's all about your SHAPE!

Shaped Cards, that is.

When you think of making cards is a normal tendancy to create ones that are square, rectangle or perhaps even tall ones and circular cards.
But we challenged a few of our Designers to come up with some unique & out-of-the box shapes and designs.  And they went over & above with their cards!!!!

Shapes have become much easier to create because of all the die-cut and electronic cutting machines that are available to the consumer now.  This makes creating so much fun as well.

Today we have designer
sharing a super fun card with us.

Ah! Summer! Time to break out the grill the picnic basket! With so many summer parties on the books {from BBQ's to fun play dates to girls' night out}, I thought it would be fun to have a special invitation to invite friend's to a summer party. 

Summer parties and watermelon are synonymous to me thus, it was only fitting that a watermelon be the shape of my card. My dilemma of not wanting to cover the whole watermelon with the wording of the invite were easily solved with a mini-banner flying from skewer sticks attached to the back of the card. 

I hope your summer is full of parties and watermelon!
