Shaped Cards

I'm the hostess this week at Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I hope you like the board I've created; I wanted to do something summery and I thought these elements fit the bill.

I chose the bottom row across - stripes, embellishment and shaped card.  As usual I used more than just those three elements.

I love making shaped cards and "fold-its" or easel cards in particular.  This one however will need some doctoring. It doesn't stand up! It totally tips to one side. Right now it is a straight fold-it card and that's the issue. Usually these are great and stand on their own, but not the anchor (it may have if I had placed the fold on the side but I doubt it.) I  plan to cut off the back and make this into an easel card with a base. I know it will stand then but I need to figure out the base part

In any event, I think this anchor makes a great shaped card even if it doesn't stand on its own! And you can always adhere the anchor to the front of a regular card.
