Although I may be tired of snow and it looks as though there may be some coming in this next week I couldn't help by try some of these shaped notecards. I was inspired by Jin Yong at Under a Cherry Tree . She has wonderful ideas and great video tutorials. I encourage you to check out her blog... WONDERFUL! Inspired by her work I went and checked out Lettering Delights. Wow! I love the low prices and the images... so much cheaper than cartridges and more versatile too.
Now to the cards. I used the Eskimo Kisses from Lettering Delights and the Make the Cut program for the snowbear and the penguin. Using the shadow feature I welded two shadows together to form the base card then cut the layers. Be cautious when creating the welded card for the snowbear. I made the mistake of mirroring the image wrong and when cut and folded the arms didn't match. Oh well, live and learn. Later I used the Create a Critter cartridge with my Gypsy and made the elephant. I thought he would be cute for quick Valentine notes.
These were fun and easy to make. I look forward to making more to have on hand for a variety of occasions. Have a great day and stay warm :)
