November Diva Dare ~ Day 8

"Shape Up", November Diva Dare

Hi there!! It's Charmaine and I'm excited to bring you my take on this month's Diva Dare entitled "Shape Up".

What we're daring you to do this month is to create a card or project including a common shape.  For example:  hexagons, chevrons, arrows, triangles, hearts, stars etc.  Lots of fun ways you can go with this dare and we can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my card using this month's dare:






I used Unto Us for my card.  The papers are from the Nordic Pines Collection from Bazzill.  When I was thinking about what shapes to add to my card, I decided to make a Christmas tree out of the triangle.  I trimmed a triangle out of green cardstock and then stamped it with the snowflake from Unto Us.  


Next, I decided on a star for the top of the tree.  I stamped and cut out the star from Chevron Love and attached it to the top of my "triangle" with foam tape.  I used the frame and sentiment from Unto Us along with the coordinating Classy Label Die for the sentiment.  I die cut the reindeer using the Reindeer Fun Die Set and embossed the reindeer in black.  Rhinestones were added for the ornaments on the tree and some baker's twine to finish the card.  






Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, November 27th.  Entries must be new (posted 11/8 or later), include at least one Verve product, include a common shape, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 11/27/13.
