Here is a super fun shaped card I made. I adore shaped cards and make them quite often... I may have to make some more of these to add to my card stash.
All the paper is from my stash. I cut the card shape using the flower on Simply Charmed (page 39) and used my Gypsy to size it to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and weld the shadow layer to form the card base. The entire flower head is popped up on a layer of pop dots.
I inked all the edges of this card, the orange layers using orange ink and the green layer using green ink. I curved this stamp from Hero Arts : Big Hugs set to fit the shape of the flower head.
I used a green button from my stash and some lace to add an adorable stamen to the flower head. I popped the center of the flower up on a second layer of pop dots to accommodate the thickness of the button. I ran a length of lace around the bottom edge of the flower head too.
Here you can see how cute the shaped card base is. I love how well it stands up. It opens from the top, I cut the card base in white and cut an additional top layer in black (for the shadow) and the extra layer covers the folded edge on top. Lastly, I added some doodling using my Gelly Roll white gel pen.
