It's the time for more inspiration for the current  challenge over at

Ch# 14 Create your own Shaped Card 
(No pre designed shaped card files)
Begins: Sunday, June 1
Ends: Monday, June 30

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.

Sponsor this month is:

(3) Silhouette Replacement Blades

For my shaped card , I decided to make one in a word shape for my dad since it was his birthday.
I typed out the letters  and made an offset of the word.  Using the offset I mirrored it above  and then just slid them together and welded it for my card base :)  I made an extra offset of the letters for a little dimension , cut them all out,  put them together and all done!  I also added some TH distress inks to kind of grunge it up a little. Since it was for a guy lol .

Thanks for sopping by and make sure to head in over to see what the DT has created for you inspiration and link up today.

Lovely shaped card, not sure if that is patterned paper or made using the colour shades in silhouette studio but it is a lovely way to give a little extra to a male card.
