The new Shady Tree Studio floral images that were recently released are so beautiful, and I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to craft with first.  So, I chose all 5 and made a set complete with a matching gift box.  (Sometimes indecision can be a fun thing!)


When you use designer paper (dp) do you often end up with lots of little bits and pieces of it which are then generally wasted.  Well, to prevent any waste, I came up with a template not long ago that uses 2) 6″X6″ pieces of dp.  This works well with all of the 6″X6″ paper pads available now.  And all of the pieces of dp used on the box and the 5 Shady Tree cards came from those 2) 6″X6″ pieces.

Here are the templates.



I used ALL of the paper on both of the 6″X6″ pieces of paper.  Even the little 1/4″ square was used on the box with the brad.

I have used this template before but made 6 cards with it rather than just 5.  Instead of having corner pieces on the cards, I had 6) 3″ X 1-1/2″ panels.  So only 2 corner pieces remained with that template.

Hope you can join me over at the CLASSroom for lots more pictures and details about the cards.

Thanks so much for dropping by today!! smileythankswithflowerani.gif
