I took inspiration from the sketch and decided to create an alternative shaped card by cutting the front off at an angle. To do this, I measured 1cm in from two corners on the front of my card blank and drew a diagonal pencil line across to help line up my edge die. I die cut along the line to shape the card with a decorative edge. I cut a mat of paper for both the inside and outside of my card blank and glued them down. I stamped and coloured my image with copics and touches of glitter to create the champagne bubbles and sparkly belt. I then stamped my sentiment onto another piece of card and used my paper trimmer to shape them into rectangles. I matted each of these onto the coordinating paper and glued them to my card, making sure the glue was only on the areas touching the card front and not on the overhang. I added paper flowers in matching colours and clear gems to complete the sketch with a touch of decoration and sparkle.
