You know I've been experimenting with my eCutter right? Well that's what I did for today's card. I found a cut file in the shape of a watering can that I just fell in love with and I wanted to make a card out of the shape. So I placed two of the same cut file on my work area on my computer and this is what I came up with:
Isn't it just the cutest card? When I placed both cut files on my work space on my computer, I turned one 180 degrees, overlapped them where I wanted the card to bend and welded them together. Then all I had to do was cut it with my machine, score it and fold! This is what the card looks like opened and flat:
And then folded flat for mailing. I made sure the card did not measure larger than 5 1/5" x 4 1/4" when it was all cut and assembled so that it would fit in our envelopes:
The Flower Patch stamp set is so perfect for this card. I love the color choice I decided to go with as I wanted the card to scream summer flowers. I'll be making more of these shaped cards now that I have it all figured out!
