Interactive Shaped Card - Dagger Shaped Card

Dagger Shaped Card
Dagger Shaped card
Shaped cards are so interesting and cute.When I first started making cards I used templates from the net or books,nowadays I try to design my own templates as its quite a lot of fun!I had a lot of fun designing and jazzing up this dagger shaped card !

I stuck pearls and inserted golden brads to glamorize the handle of my dagger shaped card.

On pulling the handle of the dagger, it slides out of the sheath to reveal a golden glittery blade


Dagger Shaped card
I used 3 D holographic shiny paper for the dagger blade.It think it will be a fun card for a little boy to play with!
On the other side I used  wood colored paper recycled from an old wedding card.Added a Happy birthday greeting on the dagger inside the card !

Here is the closeup of the handle with a flower on the brad!
Dagger Shaped card
I actually created the dagger shaped card by playing around with my scorpal but the tutorial for that is too lengthy and boring so designed a simple template for the dagger shaped card.
Shaped Card Template
Make the dagger with thick card [or stick 2 card pieces together] as other wise it will be floppy  when you draw it out.  Bend the tabs inwards,apply glue and stick to complete the sheath of the dagger shaped card.
This card is surprisingly quick to make and doesn't require a lot of embellishing..It will be a fun card for party invitations or birthdays especially for little boys.

Edited:This card was featured on Beyond Grey Challenges as the most daring creation! Thank You BCG!

    1. Ha Ha Priya I dont know how an adult would take it and I guess I wouldnt give it to any of my female friends either but I made this card keeping some of my daughters "boy" friends in mind--a 6 year old would just love it!
