Lately I have been seeing some cards that are shapedlike a privacy screen.  I thought the design of the shaped card was just too cute not to make one.  The Yahoo Group that I belong to had an "Artist's Choice" swap this month so this is the card I made to send to my partner.  You can find the measurements on some of the Pinterest posts or see videos on YouTube.
Before decorating the panels, I used a Martha Stewart Punch on the top edge and the Stampin' Up! Decorative Label punch to make the "legs".
The flourishes I used are from a Hero Arts clear acrylic stamp set.  The flowers were punched using the Petite Petals and mini lower punches with Stampin' Up! Pink Passion card stock.  I added some flat gold metal gems to the centers of the flowers.  The little butterfly is a dimensional sticker from Jolee's Boutique.
To send the card it is folded and I tied a sheer ribbon around it.  I think I will definitely make more of these.  It takes a little more planning but it makes such a fun change-of-pace card.
Posts may be irregular over the next few weeks because I am getting items ready to take to a stamp sale and may be away the end of the month.  Thanks for stopping by!

What a fabulous card, Vicki! Love the "privacy screen" idea, and I love the punches and colors you used on it.

Neat idea!

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
