Border Punch - Martha Stewart Garden Trellis
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima and Love Letter Roses
Pearls - The Paper Studio
Sentiment - Heidi Grace
Lace - Wrights




I did this card pretty much freehand, just hoping it worked out as I went along! I started with a 6" square base from which I used a lid from one of my ribbon jars to cut a semi circle into the top leaving and uncut piece for the fold to hold the card together. Then I picked out a border punch, trimmed the base to the right depth and punched. Then I cut out a whole circle, edged it with lace, add the the patterned paper and then completed like a regular card. What I like is that I can make an envelope for a 6" square on my Scor-Pal and mail it easily!
I really enjoyed making something a little different and I hope you will spend time and show us your shaped cards over at The Pixie Cottage this week
