As You Like It Challenge #87 - Favourite Shaped or Standard Card and WHY

Hi Crafters,

These weeks are flying by so fast that I can hardly believe it's time for a new challenge at As You Like It.

We'd like you to showcase a project using your Favourite Shaped or Standard cardbase and tell us the reason WHY.

My choice was an easy one as I always go for a square card base, whatever the size, as I find that everything just fits in the space beautifully.

7" x 7" Card Base
Image - Crafters Companion Crisalis Classics CD - Rom (Christine Haworth)
Spellbinders Oval Floral Die
Lea'bilities Corner Die
Papers - Hunkydory
Sentiment Stamp - LOTV

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Fussy & Fancy - #170 Pink and Cream with lots of Bling
Crafty Girlz - #18 ATG
Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends - #40 ATG
Crafting When We Can - #126 Show Us Your Dies & Punches
Crafting From The Heart - #124 ATG

We have a lovely prize of a $10 voucher from our sponsor for their store.

Please take a look my Teamies wonderful makes on the challenge blog HERE.

Very elegant and love your colour choice. This size card is not one I use but I can see the advantages of all the embellishments fitting together so well. Hugs Mrs A.

Lorraine I have to agree I do love a square card too, my next favourite being a C6 size either landscape or portrait but with the fold on the smaller side.

A lovely wedding card, the image of the bride is lovely and framed just perfectly in the oval die. Great colour scheme too.

Hugs Erika. x

How lovely, I really like the printed image, great and inspiring card! Hugs, Autumn

Kat W said...

The symmetry of this design really appeals to me and and the pretty die cuts you have used give it such elegance :-)
I know what you mean about square cards; I love shaped bases but there isn't always enough space to add everything or to use a large image.
Big hugs, Kat xx
