Shaped Cards - Thanks Laurie!!!

Morning everyone, a scheduled post for you today as I'm away on a course in Edinburgh this week.  Before I went however I made this card for Laurie's challenge over at Moving Along With The Times.  Now normally I like Laurie's challenges, but this time she had me as the challenge is

Shaped Cards!

Thanks Laurie! I thought it was just Lisa who loved these, but apparently a growing number of people are moving away from square.  So a card making first for me, as I don't have a fancy cutting machine, and my Big Shot dies don't do big dies, (oh yeah, I don't have big dies!)  So what was I to do other than panic?

Search the web of course for card templates and there were loads to choose from!




I made this using a tutorial found on line at Papercraft Inspirations, with my own take on things!

Template Found Here. and some kitchen bits (not used by me) Here.

So, if like me you have a panic at the thought of shaped cards, be brave, see what's out there and come join us at MAWTT this week!
