One Template, so many uses


Hi stampy friends.  Today I want to share a card template that I was using today to create a bunch of kids cards.  I needed something that was fast, and I also wanted to use up some scraps. 









I was flipping through the catalog when I came upon a card with the Zany Zebras stamp set.  I loved the colorful background and I just changed it slightly to fit my scraps. 

It was so easy to switch out different paper colors. I made a dozen or so of these very quickly.  I needed kid cards because I donate a lot of cards to the 'Care Team' at church, and they send cards to people for Birthdays, Anniversaries, get well or Sympathy.  One woman from my church send me a text that said "My daughter got one of your pretty cards from her Sunday School Teacher today and I just wanted to let you know how beautiful we thought it was."   Super nice to hear, but her daughter is 7 and the card was pretty, but not very kiddish. :)  I thought about it and I realized that I don't make very many kid cards!  So, Zany Zebras to the rescue!! 


I was having so much fun using up my scraps, I decided to try a few more varieties.   Here is one with Shark Frenzy! 

This one uses Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Designer Series Paper, soon to retire. 

Here I used the same basic template, but I added a wave shape to the strips of paper. 

I love the dies from the Shark Frenzy bundle, so I just had to add some sea plants and tiny fish! 

I also wanted to make a grown-up card with this same template. Here I used the Sailing Home stamp set.

Papers here are Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Poppy Parade. 

One last version! Here I used the retiring InColor paper pack, which is one sale!! I cut flowers from the Pierced Blooms dies in Night of Navy, Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose.
