Free Template Saturday #7!!

Aperture Cards!!

[EDIT - Email me for access to these files!!]

It's Saturday again, and that can only mean one thing - it's time for some new, original, FREE templates for you to download!!

Today's templates should be very useful for all the cardmakers out there - they're aperture cards!!

I've included 6 templates, 3 for square cards and 3 for tall slim cards. The apertures are squares, circles and hearts. Place diecuts or stamped images behind the apertures, or use them as the basis for shaker cards!! Cut them out in any size you like, in the cardstock of your choice! Decorate them with patterned papers, stamp on them, or distress them with sandpaper, ink or paint!!

Here are some examples I cut out on the Cricut, click on the photos to see a larger view.

Again, these templates will be "live" for 1 week. Next Saturday, they will be taken down, and new ones will replace them. Don't forget, if you have any requests, pass them on! I can't promise, but I will take suggestions into account when planning future templates.

These files may not be uploaded to a group, forum or website for sale or redistribution, or shared among individuals. They are expressly for the personal use of each person that downloads them from this blog.

Because there are 6 files, I have put them into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open in the usual way, and drag the templates out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save them.

There are 3 versions of each template:
  • A printable version (GIF files) that you can import into a program like Word, then resize, print, cut out and use like any other paper template (these are NOT Word files, so don't use File/Open in Word! Use Insert/Picture to bring them into a Word document).
  • An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot program and then cut out on your Cricut.
  • A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Simply right click on the appropriate button below, and choose "save link..." or "save target..." and save your template!

Any feedback on the templates is more than welcome, and if you have any suggestions for possible future templates you'd like to see, please let me know! If you make anything using one of the templates, please post a link to it here so that others can be inspired by how you've used them!

I hope you like the templates - let me know how you get on! :)
