I’ve been in cut and fold mode lately. It’s partly due to the two new double sided paper packs from Hot Off The Press (Kaleidoscope and Noted), and partly due to Papers and Pixels magazine asking me to write an article for their June issue (more on that in a later post). It also helped that one of the requirements for the May Designer Challenge over at Paper Wishes was that we use the Noted paper pack in a way that shows off both sides of the paper. With that in mind, I set out to make some new cut and fold templates.
Here’s my first entry:
I stamped the background with the small fern stamp. All of the papers are from the Noted pack and the label is from the 15 lovely labels template. The cut and fold template for this card will be available in the June Papers and Pixels magazine.
After making that card, I decided to make another. One of the stamps to choose from for the challenge was the Bicycle stamp. My original plan was to create a template that looked like the sun and just use half the template with the bicycle in the foreground and say something about riding off into the sunset. After I got done with the prototype, I changed my mind and came up with this layout instead.
The cut and fold template will be available from my website (www.handcraftedgreetigns.com) soon.
