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.

    Hang in there, Steph, before you know it, it’ll be your grandkids outgrowing their onesies!! Love this card. The stripes are perfect and the pearls around the neck are just too fabulous! I’ve never tried to photograph a completely round card because I’ve only ever used scalloped dies to cut round cards. The scallops keep it from rolling. :-D

    I love this card so much! It reminds me of my new grandbaby’s little round belly. The pearls and ribbon are great. I might have to buy that die.
