New Home Cards - Inspirations and Templates.

Hello, Angela here again, with some of the cards I've made with my New Home card making kit (see yesterday's post), and some links to fabulous free templates I've found around the web, for making those cards a little extra special.

My Cards.

The one on the left here is done using Iris Folding. I took the cutout piece, running it through a bricks embossing folder to make the centre piece house for the 2nd card.

Links to Free Templates.

Iris folding, is a really easy, yet very impressive looking technique. The website is no-longer active, but The Circle of Crafters have kindly left all their free iris folding templates up and available for us. You can find the house shaped template here.

If you have a cutting machine, you could pick up this gorgeous free cutting file from Bird's Cards.

I found some pop-up card templates too, for making the inside of your cards stand out.

Make Popup Cards have a number of free templates, including this simple house. There's even a video tutorial. To get the free template for the simple house you need to sign up to their free newsletter.

For my final piece of inspiration, I've found this lovely door card by Lynn Pratt. She has shared a free template in her fabulous blog post.
