Quick and Easy Shaped Cards
Posted on October 10 2022
Hey, there - it's Lynnea! I'm sharing the EASIEST way to create a shaped card with any die in your stash on the LDRS Creative YouTube Channel. It's super quick and a fun way to send a little surprise!
There are multiple ways to make a shaped card, but I'm sharing what I think is the easiest way. I started by stamping the main image from the Haunted Mansion Pocket Pals 4x6 Stamps with Watermark Embossing ink and embossing it with white powder. You could stamp onto white cardstock and color the house, but I wanted to keep the color focus on my little peek-a-boo images. Once my image was embossed I blended some Raven Hybrid Ink onto the bottom portion of my image for a bit of shading and used a microfiber cloth to buff the excess ink off the embossing powder.
I lined up the Haunted Mansion Pocket Pals Coordinating Dies over the image and cut out the outline as well as the inner pieces to pop open the door and windows. While I had my dies out I cut two more mansion outlines (without using the inner dies) and set them aside. I stamped and colored a bunch of images from the Graveyard Ghouls Pocket Pals 4x6 Stamps and cut them out with the Graveyard Ghouls Coordinating Dies. I glued my heat embossed image to one of the extra mansion pieces and started placing and adhering my images.
Now it's time to make the shaped card! I took the other extra mansion die-cut and added a score line below the top peaks of the mansion, added adhesive above the score line, and glued my heat embossed mansion to the background piece. THAT'S IT! Seriously! It couldn't be easier! If you use this method you can make a shaped card from any die in your stash!
I hope you enjoyed this fun tutorial! See you soon!
