I get messages from paper crafters of all abilities & sometimes I get one that makes me realise that I have lost my focus on covering the basics, so I have put together this sheet - which is an easy way to position an aperture in the front of an A6 card.
Simply cut out the template you want, position it on the front of your card, pencil around the inside of the aperture & then cut the shape out from your card, & you will have a perfectly centred aperture every time.
....but then I got a bit carried away again & the apertures became more ornate...... so some of this set is much more suited to someone with confidence using a craft knife!
I have left all of the solid lines in this template in case you want to score them to give the central chalkboard some definition. You could also use a wood grain paper to paper piece around the chalkboard, to make it more realistic.
Interlocking templates; either use as your base card or as an embellishment on a larger card.
Two sheets with this download, as it includes all of the templates for the layers too.
I have included a little mechanism on the bottom corner of the sheet that needs to be folded into an 'M' shape & then stuck inside the base of the card, to prevent the finished card from 'splaying'.
Sorry, don't know how I forgot but I haven't marked the central fold line, but it is actually obvious as you just need to fold the main body of the card in half.
I was aiming for a London 'black cab' shape & I don't think it turned out too badly! I have even given you the extras such as headlights & windscreen etc. & marked the place where they go on the main template.
