Shaped Cards - TBBM



















Earlier this week, Robyn at My Pink Stamper posted a video showing how to make a really cute shaped card using Tag, Bags, Boxes and More. You can see this video and all her other great videos here.

Basically, using Design Studio or Gypsy, you weld two tags together to create your card base. I increased the width of my tags to make my card a little wider.

My images are from the Preserves cartridge, cut at 3". I really like this cartridge ... there are some awesome images and they layer together very nicely.

The sentiment stamp for the watermelon card is from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Occasions set, and the stamp for the blueberries card is from Papertrey Ink's Mega Mixed Messages set. The papers are all from Stampin' Up.

Cute, quick and easy. Hope you like them.

Wow! Your cards are so darling! I am so impressed that you were able to figure out how to weld them together. I even paused the video from Robyn and still it wouldn't cut. I am sure I am missing something simple. I just love how beautiful your cards are. Makes me want to try again! XOXO, Julie. :0)
