Learn to Create a Cloud-Shaped Card

Shaped cards are a huge trend right now. Did you know that you can create shaped cards using many of our Die-namics? The Jumbo Cloud STAX Die-namics is one of our favorites. amycard1 Create the card base by folding a piece of 8 1/2″ x 6″ Smooth White Card Stock in half . Place the folded card stock on your cutting plate. Place the largest cloud from the Jumbo Cloud STAX Die-namics on top of the card stock. Be sure that the top edge of the could die is partially off the fold (as pictured below). Secure the die in place with removable tape. Place the other cutting plate on top of the die and run the stack through your machine. Now your card base is ready for your personal touch. amycard3 Die-cut the same cloud from Steel Grey Card Stock. Stamp the cloud with polka dots. Stamp a sentiment in watermark ink and emboss it with gold embossing powder. Trim off the bottom third of the cloud, just below the sentiment. Add a rainbow of color to the cloud with small fishtail flags. amycard4 Adhere the grey cloud to the white card stock base using foam adhesive dots. amycard5 Finish off the inside of your card with a sweet sentiment. amycard2
