Well, here's the secret! Abby posted this tutorial at the The Paper Variety on how to make shaped cards which can basically be designed out of any shape cut from a Cricut cartridge that has a blackout or shadow function.
I learned this little secret a while ago. I do use my Gypsy a lot to weld shapes together but it does take some thought. The shape needs be flipped and lined up correctly in order to make an even fold but sometimes, the shape you want to use really can't be welded properly.
I made this Basket Full of Eggs card using the shadow function from Doodlecharms since the shape of the basket would make for a hard weld.
Here's what the inside of my card looks like by using the shadow function key, scoring for a flap and adhering together. Easy Peasy!
Hope this shaped card tutorial inspires you to make your own unique shaped cards. Maybe for our Egg-ceptional challenge this week? The only limit is your imagination.
