Taking a red square card blank I cut a triangle shape from each of the four sides thereby making an "X" shape.
Using this as a template, I traced around it onto some patterned paper from the fabulous g.c.d. studios paper stack Joyful Peace and then trimmed slightly inside the lines with deckle-edged scissors ... added a red velvet bow and a greeting and 'Bob's yer Uncle!' ... or maybe yer Aunty - you never can tell these days lol!If more inspiration is needed before you have a go then check out the DT gallery over at Humbug Hall where Ann, Abi and Kathy K. are sharing some great ideas for shaped cards. If you have a good idea of your own then feel free to join in, we'd love to see it.
Righty-O ... gotta' dash to the hairdresser so will see you all later xxx
