How to make a shape card w/o the Design Studio!

One of my fellow crafters on The Pink Stamper's Facebook page was wondering how to make a shape card if you don't have the design studio. So I did a little research and this is what I came up with. I used a pretty complex cut so it would be a little easier to figure out if your shape was solid. :)

Step ONE - Cut your shape and pieces. Then cut 2 shadows of the shape. The black phones piece are the shadows. Assemble the piece on ONE of the shadows...



Step TWO - Use the plain shawdow piece as the back of your card. You want to score and fold about a 1/2 inch section on one side of the shape to glue to the top layer. For this card I only scored the base of the phone - the cord and handset are glued to the top layer... (This picture only shows the inside and back of the card.)



Now you can write or stamp your greeting on the inside of the card - since this is black I would put a layer of white down before I stamp. :) Let me know if you have any questions. Here's the final basic product!
