Unique shapes add interest in your card making designs so don’t be afraid to create ‘outside the box’. Uneven corners or layers that are cut on an angle are a great way to add not only interest, but texture.

I shared this ice cream cone card using the free Hello Cupcake Sale-A-Bration stamp set last week. If you missed that card design idea, you can view it HERE. The angled layer is a perfect example of how unique shapes add interest.

This elegant butterfly is showcased on a layer with only two rounded corners. The Gingham Gala Designer Paper mimics those same corners providing uniformity and unique shapes to add interest.

Unique Shapes Card Video

During last night’s YouTube Live I demonstrated how to make this card. If you missed joining me Live, I’ve included the video below. Be sure to scroll down to see the rest of the pictures, the cutting dimensions and supplies used to make this card.

And in case you hadn’t noticed, this card making design uses the same products featured in this month’s card making kit.This Bundle has been so popular that it’s currently out of stock – but that hasn’t stopped this month’s pre-planned kit, simply because so many of you told me you had already purchased it. YEAH! And you can always substitute the images with another stamp. Click HERE or scroll down for this month’s kit details. **Please note that even though the bundle (stamp + punch) is unavailable, the stamp set is still available for purchase and the punch will return in the annual catalog so the punch is not gone for good!
