Crazy For Cajun Craze and Shaped Cards!

Oh, how I love to make shaped cards!  They have so much more "character" than square or A2 cards, don't you agree?

This scene from "With Deepest Sympathy" by Our Daily Bread designs was stamped and colored while the cardstock was still in the Labels 8 cutting die, for the appearance of being matted without adding another layer.  Though this is a sympathy set, I love to use it often for masculine cards....I know I've said it many times, but Our Daily Bread designs entire stamp line is sooooo versatile!!!
