Your Next Stamp - Feature Day - Shaped Card

Hello friends - thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
Today is a special day for me as it is my husband and
my daughter's birthday.  He's gotten very used to sharing his
birthday with her and always says that she was his best present ever.
I do think they share a special bond because of it. 

It's also my my last post as an April Guest Designer 

This challenge is to make something other than an A2
(standard 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" sized) card.  I  make lots of
square cards but seldom make shaped cards.
Not sure why as I have lots of layers dies that work
wonderfully for this style of card.

I pulled out those dies and got busy making this fun little creation
with an adorable stamp set called "Spring Birds"

Aren't these little birds so tweet?? Sorry - I couldn't help myself!
Doesn't this sentiment make you want to break into a song?
"Rockin Robin" comes to mind for me.  
I used lots of fun layers and a little paper piercing to add texture.
I snipped the very end of the bottom tip off so the card will stand up.
The overall size is approx 5 x 5 3/4" so it will fit in a 6x6 envelope.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Come and Get it Challenges - Things that Start with "B"
Crafty Creations - #287 Seeing Spots
Papertake Weekly - Cute as a Button
Addicted to Stamps - Challenge #141 Anything Goes

I have so enjoyed this opportunity to share my creations
using these wonderful stamps and being part of this
amazingly talented and creative group! 
Such a blessing for me! Thank you Karen and YNS Team!
'Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D


  1. I tend to make them square or a2 myself, and whenever I make a shaped one I wonder why I don't do it more often...it's not that complicated and I'm always feeling satisfied afterwards. This is such a cute one, great shape,love the sweet image!
