FCCB # 171--Shaped Cards

If you've visited this blog on a regular basis, you know that shaped cards are one of my very favorite things to make.  They are just so fun!  And that is our challenge this week for Fantabulous Cricut!  You can play along--just create a shaped card being sure to use at least ONE Cricut cut.  

One of the women I work with in the OR has a not-quite two-year-old boy (one of a set of twins) who needs heart surgery.  They will be going up to KC in a couple of weeks to get it done.  The twins were very premature and spent a lot of time in the hospital after they were born but have really done very well!  Anyhow, I made this card for him (really his mom LOL).


I used the Teddy Bear Parade Lite cartridge--one of the most fun carts PC has ever released.  Bear measures 6.5"  tall.  I welded two of the shapes together (one is flipped) and cut the rest of the layers.  I added stickles to the heart on the X-ray and the stethoscope.  Scrub layers are popped up on foam tape.


Inside is a sentiment from the retired SU Build a Bear set.  I am so glad I kept it because it is perfect for cuts from this cartridge!  

I love this card.  I hope it lets my friend know that I care about her and her son and will be praying for his quick recovery.

Thanks for dropping by today, and don't for get to play along with FCCB this week!
