Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's I have a couple of cute shaped cards for you. I love shaped cards, so much fun to create and give.

The free template for this card can be found at:
I used papers from 2 -6x6 paper stacks, Annalee Collection, by Prima
and Miss Caroline, Howdy Doody. The butterfly and heart punches are by Martha Stewart.
Flowers by Prima, Pearls by Kaiser. I put black behind the openings in
the letters for depth. I outlines each letter with Stickles, Star Dust.
Great card, for Mother's Day, or for anyone in need of a hug, and who isn't?

For this little birdhouse card, I just cut my own pattern.
For something similar, there is a free template here:
After I was happy with the simple shape, I cut two, pieces,
one from designer paper and the other from white card stock.
On the white card stock, I scored across the top about 1 1/2 ".
Fold the score back. Apply adhesive to the white card stock
above the score line and adhere the designer paper to the white card stock piece.
This will allow you to be able to open the card. I cut two pieces 1/2 inch
to form the roof.
Papers I used are from the same two pads I used for the Hug card above.
The little Birds are from a Cling set from Inkadinkado, Birds (60-60033).
Leaves are a Sizzix die, Branch w/leaves (656367) Flowers are Prima.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you saw something you liked.  Until later..........
