I haven't made many shaped cards despite having the Wild Card Cart (this card isn't on there by the way!) but I fancied making an easter egg shaped card and after many trial cuts this is what I came up with. This card at this size- approx 7 1/4"- can be made on the Create (in Portrait mode) & Expression and a smaller version of approx 6" can be made on the Original bug. First of all I cut an easter egg shape from embossed white Doodlebug cardstock, decorating the bottom half of the egg with patterned paper.I then adhered it to a white card,the front of which I covered with pink paper. The egg was adhered quite close to the left hand edge of the card, then I cut around it with scalloped scissors (always start cutting in an area that can be covered if the scallops don't quite meet). I then adhered the band across the egg and decorated it with layered flowers & leaves. I cut 'Happy Easter' from pale pink glitter paper from CraftTime and finished with a pearl swirl.
