How is this for a fun shaped card?  

I used the "Outdoor Man" cartridge and Cricut Craft Room to create this shaped card.  The image can be found on page 37 of the handbook.  I welded two of the shadows together to create the card base.  I then cut another shadow for the front of the card and adhered all my layers to it.

The image was cut at 7."  I embossed the light brown part of the door with the Distress Stripes embossing folder.  I then inked it with tea dye Distress Ink.  The grass is also inked, but with crushed olive Distress Ink.  I adhered the door to look like it was partially open.  The hinged side is adhered to the card, the middle has one layer of foam tape, and the handle side has two layers of foam tape.  I covered the dark brown parts of the door (hinges, handle, crescent moon) with glossy accents.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Happy Campers set.  I stamped it on light brown card stock, then matted it with a medium brown card stock.  The sentiment is stamped in walnut stain Distress Ink.  I then added two bronze brads to the sign and used some baker's twine to give it a way to hang.  I hung it over another larger bronze brad in the door.  The sign is actually adhered with foam tape.

I am entering this in the current challenge at BBTB2, which is to make something to do with camping.
