Carftmad April Card Swap - Shaped Cards

Hi everyone, I have surprised myself and completed the April Craftmad Card Swap during April and managed to get them to the mailbox so that my partner can receive them during April.  Yay!  I did have fun creating these.  My partner and friend enjoys a cup of coffee so when I saw these shapes appearing in Pinterest I had to have a go. I found a template by Deonna here and I cut the shape from brown card stock attached the corrugated green card stock then created the cap which is attached to the inside of the card where the message can me written.  As I had my sewing machine out I decided to stitch all around the edges of the card.  I then stamped the card with one of the flourishes from my Stampin Up stamp set.  Finished with a Thank You sentiment and pink paper flower.

This is where you can add your Thank you message.

I just loved these chicken cards when I saw them and as my friend/partner is a country girl at heart I thought she would appreciate this shape as well.  An easy card to do, all the shapes were hand cut, I used Diane's template here.

Thanks for passing on by.

  3. These are both great Cards. I love that chicken card. I have a friend who keeps chickens (she even named one after me Mrs A.) and this shaped card would be a fun one to send her so i might just have to pinch your idea if I may.
    I got all my swap cards out and posted early this month too. Kaye might even get hers before the end of the month.
    Hugs Mrs A.

  4. Thank Mrs A. What a great name for a chook. :-) I enjoyed making these shaped cards. I think we all seem to be on a roll this year with sending out our swap cards…..must all have the same New Years resolution. :-) Even though it is a simple shape I did use a template so I had the right proportions. This is the link.

  5. Wow Merry both your cards are gorgeous the chicken card is just so cute xx
