Just Us Girls #632 - Trend Week

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and our host Carol M has chosen 

I was making things ahead and forgot I had already made a shaped card so I have two of them to show you.  I'm showing you the second one first.

I had forgotten about this set from The Stamp Market.  It's a Christmas set and a gift card holder but I turned it into a simple card using a heat embossed sentiment and letters from SSS.

My other card is a more complicated one from Concord and 9th.

This set includes a number of images that can be stamped, colored, die cut and layered onto a background panel so that it's three dimensional.  The celebrate die is part of the set and I've cut it with black foil paper so it would stand out.  Here's another view so you can see the sides.  The card folds and fits into an A2 envelope.

There are a number of video links on the blog to give you some ideas and of course the design team and our guest designer have cards to inspire you.  We'd love to see your card in our gallery.

I chuckled to myself when I read that you worked so far ahead you forgot you had this challenge done. Been there, done that! The mailbox was such a cute idea and then your celebratory card is awesome as well. Looks like a stage! You out-did yourself!
