This week’s challenge was to create a card in a non-traditional square or rectangle shape. We are playing with a new set called “Daddy’s Rock Star Digital Collection.”
I got out the Silhouette and attempted to make a cut out card using the rocker girl image. I had some file cutting challenges with the mirror of the outline. I cut the rocker girl out just fine and colored her with Copics and my new favourite Spica Glitter Markers. I used some ultra glittery paper from Target as the background and cut the card out by hand using my Tim Holtz Tonic scissors. I have read that glitter paper will seriously dull your digital cutting blades and didn’t want to risk it.
My card for the challenge – the star shape is from the Silhouette Store. I did the print and cut and colored again with the Copics. The inside image is also a print and cut from the same set. I used the red bling to glitz out the star. The paper is Red Chrysanthemum from the from Martha Stewart’s Winter Garden paper collection.

PS: I bought a three-month AIF Club Kit Subscription at AiFactory for $10. I am really happy with what has been offered and terrific digital images are great. Plus the price is right, quite a bargain for your downloads vs. buying them individually.
