This week's challenge from Dare U 2 digistamp is a shape card - not square. Well unless the card is square I find myself struggling to make something that will at least manage to stand up! After trialling a few ideas I found this digistamp from the Greeting Farm which I had from their recent birthday bash - and boy does he make a super shaped card - quick, simple and oh so easy.

I printed Ian on cardstock, folded it just along his head, cut around the shape, leaving a piece at the bottom, so the card would stand, and there it was a shaped card! I have watercoloured Ian, and the sentiments came from the Popcorn the bear stamp sets, Party Time and a Gift for You. This would also make a super birthday invite too.....having said that Ethan has been planning his - only nine months in advance!
