BasicGrey Challenges - Shaped Cards

Welcome to another BasicGrey Challenges ! 

 Thank you all so much for entering our photo inspiration challenge, we had lots of fabby entries. 

 This week our challenge is "Shaped Cards"

We want to see all sorts of shapes except square or rectangles !

We have, of course, a super duper prize of a $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store for one lucky winner !

Don't forget though that you need to use at least one BasicGrey product in your creation otherwise you won't be eligible to win that prize !


For my card I used the gorgeous BasicGrey "Wassail" 6x6 papers which I adore.  Sadly I don't think you can buy them any longer so I am keeping my scraps for a later date inside the pad !!  You never know when you might need them especially for a card like this one when you only need a small amount of patterned paper !

The embossing folder I used is an old Cuttlebug one I found in the bottom of my Christmas box.  It's called "Christmas Ornaments".

I added lots of Diamond Stickles to the card too for a bit of Christmas bling !

I have also used a couple of the new Holiday Release dies from Simon Says Stamp - did I tell you how amazing these are ?  You can see the whole new release on my post from yesterday with links so you can fill your shopping bags without moving anywhere ! ROFL !!!

I am joining the following challenges :

Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Circles
Crafts - Too Challenge You - Christmas Festivities
Christmas Cards All Year Round - October Challenge - Getting Ready for Christmas

We hope you can join us in our challenge and we look forward to seeing all your shaped cards !

Have a great Saturday.
