Preheat over to 350F.
Mix thoroughly butter, powdered sugar, egg, vanilla extract and almond extracts.
Blend in flour, soda, cream of tartar.
Divide dough in half. Roll 3/16" thick on lightly floured surface. Roll thick enough to pick up the design on the cookie cutters. Dip cutter in flour before each cutting.
