Flower Can Shaped Card

Don't you just love finding inspiration all over the blogging world?

Here is my card for Allsorts Week 8 Shaped cards.

I used the Cricut Cartridge Walk in My Garden to cut the flower can. Then I traced it onto the back of designer paper to get the back of the card. I adhered the 2 shapes together with eyelets and ribbon to make the card open and close.

I grabbed some artificial flowers and tied them with silver curling ribbon.

This was really fun, and I found with the shape of the card itself there really wasn't a need for a lot of embellishing.

The outside of the card is made with DCWV All Dressed Up glitter stack, and the inside of the card is made with paper from My Mind's Eye - Everyday Tango.

Hop over to Allsorts Challenge Blog and check out the designers' shaped cards. I think my favorite is the little black dress card.
