whimsical wednesday challenge in shape

happy friday :) this weeks challenge over at WW is to make a shaped card. be sure to go see what the DT has created, you wont be disappointed they are so talented!
for my card i used a childs year. i cut the teapot 3 times (2 times in ivory cardstock). (tag feature, at 6 inches) the first cut is the card base, the 2nd is the designer paper and the third cut was so i could cut off the top of the tea pot because i didnt like the look of the entire teapot with the same paper it was just too much pattern. make sense? ;)  i also didnt care for the squared off top so i used a circle punch, punched 2, then adhered them to the front and back right over the squared part.
for the cup i used the card feature . i inked the entire thing up with colorbox fluid chalk. i also added in some lines etc . i adhered it to the teapot using foam deminsionals. this cartridge is all silhouettes so you gotta add that doodling :) anyway this was super super easy. and the card stands up perfectly. no rolling sideways all wonky without any adjustments! woo hoo! 
thanks so much for stopping by today have a great one :) xxxshelly

Oh, I am all over this card. It just looks like it belongs to me. I collect transferware china and actually have pieces that look a lot like these. This is just a beautiful card. I especially like the way you inked and added the lines to it. Beautiful!!!!!

OMG! Who needs design studio when you can do this?! GORGEOUS, Shelly! The beautiful patterned papers are so perfect and your inking is always so impeccable! I was SO THRILLED when I saw you left me a comment! Shelly came to my blog!!!!
PS...I know what you mean about the DS updates...sometimes seems like more trouble than it's worth. I did my card with the new cricut craft room software and talk about a learning curve...eiyiyi!
