I'm Gettin' in Shape!

At Twist of Faith this week, our challenge theme for you is to create a SHAPED CARD! That is, not our regular shapes of square or rectangle.  As we always do, your creations are to include a scripture, verse or quote that is positive and encouraging.

This week, we are sponsored by  Digi Darla's Designs, offering our random prize winner a generous stash of images! I have combined an image from our sponsor...and a digi text I created using Matthew 7:7...

I printed the image and trimmed it out, after colouring with SU! markers, and highlighting the brass fittings with glitter pen, and the light with Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles. I trimmed the scripture (printed on vellum) to fit the cut out window pane, and fixed it to the back, before fitting the image to a textured brown folded card ...  I then used my paper cutter to trim the top peaked edges, and used scissors to cut the sides by hand.  The card is hinged (folded) at the bottom step, and at the top (the cut out doesn't show properly). To the door handle fittings, I added champagne coloured rhinestones.

I have very little depth perception, so hopefully I've coloured in the right areas that should be darker due to shadows and's a flat card, but hopefully it doesn't look that way! :-)

This card is also entered into these challenges:
WordArt Wednesdays - Anything goes (10/4)
Milk Coffee - Anything but Square (11/4)

The design team showcased some  fabulous images from our sponsor this week, so I hope we can inspire you to join us in our SHAPED CARD Challenge at TWIST OF FAITH CARDS! Thanks for peepin'!

You did a lovely job. Your creativity came through with this one. I looked at the b&w image and didn't see this lovely card in it (smile). You've definitely done a top notch job of showing a different (and lovely) way to use that image. Well done!

How cute, Pauline! I never think "outside the box" like this - I just love using the door shape for this verse. What an amazing and creative card. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us!
