Cute Card Thursday and A Template

Use for CCTa

 I had a day of playing on the PC yesterday, not only did I give this blog a make over, I decided to open another blog to post all my tutorials so they would be in one place and easy to find, if you fancy a peek here is the  link Cats Whiskers Tutorial Blog,   As I  was playing around I deleted my Crafty Blog banner by mistake and I cannot remember my user name so I am having to start again!!!, DOH!!!!!!

I have a different shaped card for you today and I have included a little Template although it is not to size, once I had drawn this template I noticed that Marlene has also made the same shaped card, I am not sure if we used the same measurements though.  I am going to enter this card for Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which this week want to see cards to “Banish the Blues” what a fabby theme, they would like to see our cards with a bit of humour.

The card is a different take on a Step Card, sorry the photo is a bit blurred, The image is of course from Lili of the Valley  its called “New Hat”, I have used Copics and Prismas to colour the image and added glitter and pearls.  The papers are from the Buds and Blossom kit from Nitwits Downloads.  The doily is a Die-namic Die from Dies to Die For.  The larger MS Border was a last minute addition, I was getting the card ready to photograph when I felt the bottom need a bit of tarting up, I add some lovely buttons and charms from The Hobby House.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This great Stamp is by Inkadinkado also available from Dies to Die For, and I hope fits the challenge, it made me smile anyway.

I have forgotten to take a note of the Copics I used so sorry,

Here is a side view of the card.

Now here is the template for you

Start with White card 12” x 8”  and mark and score at 1”, 2”, 6” and 7” along both sides, measure 1.1/2” in from each side and draw a line from the 1” to 7” mark as shown, with a sharp craft knife and steel ruler cut down this line, now following the broken lines on photo score at 1”, 2” 7” and 6” marks as shown.

Fold along scored lines and your card should end up looking like the above photo.

Side view.

If you have any queries just e-mail me, and please let me see your cards if you use this template.
