Shaped Card (not square or rectangle)

Shaped Card Tips:
Cheery Lynn's XL Stackers Nesting Dies are great for making shaped cards, and they are FUN to use! To make a folding shaped card, just be sure to fold your paper first with the die just a little bit off the edge of the fold, tape in place with removable tape and run through your die cutting machine. You may need to run it through your machine a couple of times to get the die to cut through BOTH pieces of paper (that's why the removable tape is important).
