I love shaped cards! If you're a regular visitor to my blog you'll see many shaped cards. You can use many different dies to make shaped cards. Follow this post, and I'll show you how.
First, the finished card, then how I did it --
Here's the supplies I used (more details later):
I created the card base using the largest Spellbinders die. Pictured below is how I did it.
Notice that I left one edge of the die hanging off the paper, which is already folded in 2, like the card base. I like to use washi tape to hold my dies in place. You can easily remove it after you run it through your die cutting machine.
Here's the card base after it's cut out. I cut out another piece of paper using this same die and tape it over the top, hiding the flat edge on the left.
