More Shaped Cards




Here are more shaped cards I have made. The chair folds up flat and the second photo shows it all folded up, ready to mail.
The fishing hat I folded the paper, cut the shape and then decorated the front with watercolor and flies I cut from Spellbinders die templates. The "In my garden" card was also made with Spellbinders die templates. Inside is a beautiful photo of the butterfly garden at the cabin. By cutting this unusual gate fold opening, I was able to fit all three die cuts on the front of the card (more is better, right?). The texture was made by running the card through the Wizard with screen (yeah, you know, the kind you have in your windows to keep the bugs out......you name it, I will try it!)

Thanks, Mar....sorry no tutorial link. I actually saw a card similar to this one at a gift shop that sells invitations, etc., and went home and made my own. I love 3 D cards and am always looking for new ideas.
