Shaped Card - Pile It On #42

This week the challenge at Pile It On is to make a shaped card. No rectangle or squares this week. There's so many fun shapes that are pretty easy to make. Some easy shapes to make are Christmas trees, dog bones,eggs, circles and hearts. An easy way to make a shaped card is using a die cut. You might have a child's coloring book that has some pictures you can use for a template. The crayon shape was very simple and until I came across the stamp I would never have thought of it. It's a small single stamp, I think it cost about $1.00. Let your stamps be your inspiration. If you don't have a template do a google search and you're sure to find a picture you can use. Just remember to leave a small bit on the edge for the fold. When you're making shaped cards you can go with a clean and simple look like this one or you can get wild and crazy and put lots of embellishments on it. Have fun making it and them link it up on the Pile It On challenge blog.
