Less is More - a shaped card

This week the LIMettes want us to make a shaped card, not something I'm usually too keen on.  Then I remembered how to cut down a standard rectangle into a triangle which can make a fun Christmas card.   There's not a lot of white space as I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder on the smaller, matted triangle, but I think it still works...   Sentiment is Lili of the Valley.

  21. I think this is a perfect Christmas card shape Anne - interesting that you did it from a rectangle too - you'll have to show us how. I tried cutting a shaped card before I got the cricut out but ended up with 2 unlinked halves.........
