Another Shaped Card

As you know I've been trying hard to get really stuck into card making again and trying to blog every day! (EEK!) Well I've found the whole thing to be quite a cathartic process. Over the two weeks that I've blogged every day I've seen my cards go through a complete change! The most recent evolution is shaped cards, I love em! In fact I love them so much I'm going to spend all next week blogging them!
So, onto today's shaped card.... This one, as with Wednesday's card uses shapes that I've cut on my Silhouette but you could use large punches or dies for this too, have a look through what you've got and think about them differently! Imagine how you could arrange them together to make a shaped card, it's loads of fun! To make it into a card make your shaped card front and then make a tent fold card in just the right size to stick on the back without being able to see it.
These lovely swirls were cut on my Silhouette too.
I love these beautiful flower brads from Charmed Cards and Crafts, aren't they just perfect!

I made a box for this card because it's quite fragile.

The papers are from my Basic Grey Off Beat 6X6 pad

The image is Holly in the Garden from the Holly & Madison download collection.
