Just for You + A Video

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share a card that was published in Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine's January issue (yeah!). You can find the issue HERE.

This card was in the triangles section of the issue:

Just for You

I started by making my own paper digitally (the diamonds) using a 4x6 Photo Template no. 2. I added the cake die-cut from Ruby Rock-It and stamped the Hero Arts sentiment.

I thought the Lucky Charm tiny triangles didn't quite match the diamonds, so I added vellum to soften it. Here's a close-up:

I made a video that shows how to use digital templates. It wasn't the same process I used on this card (there were a few more steps), but I used the same template. As a forewarning, the patterned paper I made in the end was pretty ugly. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
