I am wondering how you make an image into a card. For example, let's say the design is a shirt; how can the image be cut where there are two images still attached in order to make a card? Like if it's a shirt maybe the image being attached at the shoulders. I am sorry I probably am making no sense at all. lol

That would be called a shaped card and you will need to have Design Studio or a Gypsy to be able to weld, as in your example a shirt, the shoulders together. Hope this helps or you can also look up "welding shaped cards" on youtube. Good luck!

If you do not have CDS or a G, you can also do it by folding a piece of cardstock just below where your image will cut at the top of the "shoulders". (Do this with scraps first.) Then you have your "base" The next step is to make the cut for your front & you may need to cut 2 to reinforce the "shoulders" (Where your fold of the cardstock is under the front.) On the E you may have to do a multicut on the cardstock, again just test with scraps first. I hope I have explained it clearly enough. I did many cards this way before DS came out. Good luck![biggrin]
