Monday Montage 17

        Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop.  You should have arrived here from the wonderful Cathy Casey's blog.  If not and I'm your first stop- no worries! Simply use the back/next buttons at the bottom of this post to navigate your way around the hop.

Tonight's project is a shaped card.  I love creating cards that are out of the ordinary and not the usual "card" shape.  I've seen these camera cards all over the internet on various websites so I'm not really sure who the original creator is.  I did not use a tutorial or anything like that when creating my version.  I just kinda winged it!

My base is the standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  Using the Envelope Punch Board- I made a tab at the top (Line up the left side of the card at 1-3/4" and punch.  Flip card over and punch again at 1-3/4").  Trim off the excess card stock along the top and round the corners. Embellish as you wish!   It's as simple as that!  

This is the inside of the card.  It's not fancy at all but it was perfect for the occasion I needed it for!  It's definitely hard for me to not use more embellishments like ribbon or baker's twine on this card.  I thought about adding a camera strap but just didn't like how it looked so I left it plain.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will continue the rest of the way around our hop!  Up next is the fabulous Dara Gloden!  I know she has something great in store for you all today!
