Let's Get In Shape

Hey Hey Hey! It's Tuesday, folks! Tuesdays mean new release day, at Bugaboo Stamps! Today's new release being featured is Critter Sign It - Bear. I love this one, because it could be used as a tag, a card front, or even a shaped card - Like I've done, here.

Come over to Catch The Bug and see all the creative ways the DT has found to show off today's featured new release!

I've made a shaped card, using Critter Sign It - Bear, from Bugaboo Stamps. I printed the image, attached it to folded cardstock and hand cut around it, to create the shaped card. I used the paper piecing technique to add pink swirly patterned paper to the sign. The sentiment is punched with a circle punch and attached with foam mounting tape, for dimension.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
