Let's Shape it up!

One of our new team members, Margaret has chosen our theme this time at CD Sunday and what a great choice. If you pop over to CD Sunday Challenge Blog you will see that the team have come up with some very different shapes and I'm sure you can all think of lots more - we would love to see them so please do join in this time around. We would love to see you.

Here is my shape!

I used a WS Design template called ginger jar for my base card. I thought it was perfect for this image and backing paper from Joanna Sheen's Enchanted Christmas CD. I matted the main image onto some red card to pick out the little child's blouse and used a piece of the same card to die cut the trim along the bottom (this die is Creative dies craft essentials  from Craft Stash). I attached the image onto the card using foam tape. I used some gingham ribbon to tie around the top of the jar and tied a double bow. This particular ribbon is lovely and soft and ties beautifully. (It is by Three Kings Ribbon and I think I probably got it from here

I then just added a die cut fork and spoon under the ribbon to finish. (This little die is wafer thin and I've had it for ages but cannot remember the maker).

Please have fun and join in with us.


  1. Love the shape, makes a great card, beautiful image nice to see the old fashioned images being used.

  2. Great shape card Jocelyn and it really suits the image. I shop at Craft Stash too and have a couple of Creative Dies - this make is free with craft magazines quite a lot.

  5. Great shape Jocelyn. I love the little die cut fork and spoon would look great on the recipe books I make. If you remember the make can you let me know please.....I would love cute. Wynn xx

  6. I love your Ginger Jar Jocelyn. It reminded me of my Father who had a great love of stem ginger and used to buy it in those lovely Chinese Ginger Jars.

  7. Hi Jocelyn. I love the shape of your card and the image you've used reminds me of baking with my lovely mum when I was a child, she had a wooden rolling pin just like that! I love your choice of ribbon and those little die cuts are really cute. Jo x
