View Full Version : Card Template Challenge - May 10 (FREE card template!)

Hi, everyone! Rebecca here with this month's card challenge! Sorry about the confusion on this month's card challenge date, so this is a little late!

This month's card template is inspired by my love of paper blocking. One of the things I like to do a lot, both in digital and hybrid card projects, is to use multiple blocks or strips of paper. When I download a new scrap kit, I can never decide what papers I like most, so finding a layout or template to show off LOTS of pretty papers always makes me happy. All those little bits of perfectly coordinated paper! Love it!

Whether you are a digital scrapper or hybrid artist or purely paper creator, we'd love to have you join along in this month's challenge. Here is the blocked paper card design I've put together for the May challenge. If you are a paper creator, please feel free to use this as a sketch to inspire your card making!


For you digital and hybrid crafters, here is your template download. (Just click on the large image below to visit box.com (https://www.box.com/s/29ac60cb1c73bd482217) to download the template.)

*A note about the A2 card size* I'm in the U.S. and I know A2 as card size of 4.25" x 5.5" - a standard letter size sheet of paper folded in quarters - but someone mentioned to me that the A2 means a different size elsewhere. Sorry about that! A2 in this template is 4.25" x 5.5".


Here's the card I made using this template and Bee Happy by Danielle and Mari from Danielle Engebretson. I'm notorious for switching things up, so you'll see that I flipped the original card template. :)

I absolutely loved this template. Thanks!
I decided to create the card front in PSE10, and then I printed it, mounted it on cardstock and stamped on the inside of the card. It was fun!
