A Horse of a Different Color…

…or a card of a different shape – either way something unique is worth a second look!

Reggie gave me a tri-folded Valentine card this year, so I decide to re-create that shape for an appreciation card with a seaside motif:

Starfish 1

I constructed this card from a 12 x 12 piece of Pool Party card stock, cut to 11 1/2″ x 8″. I stamped the solid starfish shape from the new Picture Perfect stamp set randomly on the outside of the card with Pool Party ink before scoring at 3 3/4″ and 7 5/8″ on the Simply Scored scoring tool. I stamped one more Pool Party starfish on the middle panel inside and cut a little curved edge off the top of the front panel.

The three starfish were stamped on Very Vanilla card stock with So Saffron ink, detail stamped over in Soft Suede ink, then cut out with Paper Snips. The sentiments were stamped in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock and attached to the front and inside of the card (inside sentiment is from the Flower Patch set.) I made my own custom sized envelope using the Envelope Punch Board and a piece of Tip Top Taupe In Color Envelope weight paper. Perfect!

What creative shapes would you like to try for card-making?
