Anything but Square and Rectangle

Hello everyone,

Shaped cards are unique and fun to make. Usually, I use a rectangle card base and cut out a bordered edge. But lately, I’ve been shaping all edges of the card – circle, triangle, cupcake shape. It’s feels fun and adventurous to make but it’s really a pain to photograph – it just wouldn’t stand!! Have you tried making a circle card stand without it rolling away?

Well, here is the challenge at Tuesday Throwdown – make a shaped card! I was determined to make a “real” shaped card – cut on all sides not just a shaped bottom edge.

Here is my card:


The onesie shape is actually a die from Papertrey Ink and the cute lil’ giraffe is from Imaginisce. I look at this little baby shaped onsie and I feel very nostalgic because my little Emma wouldn’t be in her onsie much longer.

The winner of this week’s shaped card challenge will get a prize from Catherine Pooler Stampin’ Up.

Have a great week and if you have a tip for me to photograph a circle card, please let me know.
