All I have to say for this challenge is - OMG!!! What a challenge! Guess I'll be taking my CM cutting system out and see what I can do with that!

I did get a card made for this challenge - It's made with a Nestie Label 8 which was high enough to leave a hinge in the card. My card can be found here:

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=56855

I know the die is a rectanble "of sorts" and if I have time will try a more unconventional shape later!

Have a great day everyone!

I've been very boring and unadventurous and just gone circular.

A cello bag isn't going to be a problem, but I may have to custom make the envelope for this one.
