Just Magnolia...a Shaped card....Hope you're berry better soon!

Well, I was so excited about this challenge this week over at Just Magnolia! I have had this idea for a strawberry shaped card for a while and this week's challenge is "Let's get in shape" just the motivation I needed to test out my idea! I am quite happy with how it turned out and it was very easy to do with my handy-dandy Quickutz Silhouette!
This card is for Hannah's good friend Morgan, who was severely hurt by a bully at school on Friday. The poor thing had her shoulder dislocated and has several cracked ribs! It is just horrible what happened! I hope this card makes Morgan feel just a little better!
I used a strawberry Digital design to make this strawberry shaped card! It was very easy to do and I think it looks great!!!! I just opened the digital design, enlarged all the pieces at the same time to make a larger card, then ungrouped everything. Moved the pieces that I didn't need to the side. I copied the largest piece, so that I had two of the same shape, mirrored the second image, positioned it where I wanted it (above the first shape but with the tops of the two shapes crossing over slightly) and used the new weld feature to make the card outline. Then cut the strawberry shaped card base from pink Bazzill Bling cardstock. I then used the smaller shape of the strawberry to cut the front patterned paper and the inside. I then cut the stem portion from green Bazzill Bling. I saved the changes that I made to GSD file with a new name and now I can make a strawberry shaped card again!
For the image I stamped Tilda and the Magnolia Strawberries on Prism Simply Smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my copics.
I pop-dotted Tilda and the strawberries on the card and added the Computer generated sentiment, some ribbon, and BasicGrey brads for seeds! The inside sentiment is from the WOJ Summer stamp set!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
Hope you have a great day!!!
