Crafty Cardmakers Shaped Card Challenge

Happy Monday!  A new, fun challenge starts today at Crafty Cardmakers.  We would love to see your shaped cards. Please no rectangles or squares and this time it does have to be a card!

I used Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Labels Four and a pierced circle die to create my shaped card.
I scored the diecut shape at the halfway point.  I was so happy the way that it turned out - until I tried to stand the card up and it kept falling over.  Uh oh!  I tried several things, to no avail.  Finally, I asked my husband, who is quite the "out of the box" thinker to help me out.  He suggested I cut the bottom off the card in the back.  I used some old cardstock to test the theory and voila!  Success!

I am definitely going to use this shaped card again, either this way or to open at the side, then there will be no need to cut the back.

This is another challenge that brought me out of my comfort zone and opened up new techniques for me to use on future cards.  I hope you will join us for this fun challenge.
