if you have just stumbled across my
blog and you would like to see all the ins and outs
here is the link back to WEEK ONE
Take a piece of paper the same size as your base
(all the cards in the series with be A5)
Draw out a sketch with a ruler & pencil
(I try to make all my measurements on the centimeter
or on the half centimeter, this makes it easier for cutting).
Take scraps of card (a different colour for each layer)
& cut out the same as the sketch.
Also write the measurements on each piece so you can either draw around each shape on your patterned papers & then cut it out,
or cut it on your paper trimmer using the measurements.
I then store the templates in a ring binder so they are to hand when I need them.
Here is another card I made with the same template, as you can see the template stayed the same, I just moved the image & the embellishments to make it slightly different.
You will be surprised how many variations you can make with the same
template just by using different patterned papers & embellishments or
different crafting techniques,
give it a go, I would love to see what you come up with, I hope you will find the series helpful,
I would love to read your comments.
Back soon Kat x.
