Taxes all done! Woohoo! I have added some free cutting files to the STORE at THIS LINK. One of them is a freebie down below :)
I've been stencil happy lately! There is so much you can do with them.... including NOT using them as a stencil LOL...
For this card I used the stencil cutting file Doily Mandala 1 as a "cardfront".
|Doily Mandala 1 Stencil & Mask|
|Spring Card Template Cutting File|
The cutting file has dashed score lines that help to crease in the appropriate parts of the card. There are also mats for the base that cut out. I embossed the mats and inked with Bundled Sage distress inks. The mats for the spring card base are also inked and embossed. The flowers are from the Happy Flowers Digi Set and were coloured with NeoColor II watercolor crayons and a water brush. The butterfly is Ornate Butterfly Digi that was also coloured with NeoColor II's and glittered.
NOTE: To use the card template you don't need a cutting machine! The free Spring Card template also contains a PDF file that will print to your printer. Print on the wrong side of your card stock or use as a guide.
To fold the card, crease on the dashed fold lines. Fold like below :)
TIP: You can size the card template to any size. It is set currently for 5" wide and it would fit any round cardfront or diamond front between 5 and 5 1/2" in diameter.
Have a great day!
