Crafty Templates for May

Each month I am lucky enough to create with the Crafty Templates design kits.  It makes me think outside the box and be creative.  There is no set way to use the templates and they can be re-used again and again, creating something different each time.  

Here are two of my cards using the May templates.

My first card uses the Moustache Template and I chose the largest one for this card. 

I went for a traditional black moustache cut using the template.  This is perfect for those difficult masculine cards and with Fathers Day coming up in June knew this would be perfect!  I layered some Studio Calico papers and added a sentiment printed using a circus font and finished with some licorice black bakers twine. 

My second card uses the Sunshine Tag Template.

I loved putting this card together.  Although it is a tag template, it would look fab stuck to the front of a card too.  I decided to just make a tag, as I rarely make these but love how they turn out. 

I used a medium tag and glued a smaller kraft tag inside.  I chose a small cloud and sun to create this card, adding some doodling around the edges to help it stand out.  The papers are from Studio Calico and the sentiment is from one of the papers.  I finished with a large green button and some button twine.

If you'd like to find out more and subscribe to the monthly templates, you can find details here.  You would receive 10 pdf templates direct to your mailbox each month.
