Pet Sympathy card, 2 freebies & a tutorial

I finished my pet sympathy card for my friend in Canada. It turned
out nice although there are many things I would have done differently.
I used DCWV Lace and Linen designer papers. I'm going to be offering
the sentiments I made as freebies. One is She and the other He .
This post will be a longer one today. I've had some people ask me
how I print out these borders for a card layer. It's very easy.

Here is a short tutorial . Open whatever you use for your printing software.
I use PSP .You can use any program to print. Just make sure it is printing
4" by 5"  .
I use only the amount of paper I need.
I cut my paper about 6" because I like a good size area around the text border.
Most programs allow you to place the text file on the paper where you want it to print.
If you need to, do a sample print on white copy paper first for exact placement .
You're only wasting a small amount of black ink.
I put my file up in the corners. I hate wasting paper. If I am happy with
the test print , then I ready my design paper.
I take a piece of regular copy paper and adhere the pattern paper to the copy
paper using
REMOVABLE scrapbooking tape.

I turn it over and put it into my printer making sure everything will print
out the way I want.
The print should come out the printer feed looking like this.

I cut the piece I need and save the rest of the paper for other projects.
I tend not to waste design paper that way.

Now for the freebies ! These will print out to fit inside the smallest
oval Spellbinders die. PNG and 300 DPI. PU please.

If you missed getting the Rainbow Bridge digi border freebie , it's 
below this post or here .

I hope you're able to use my freebies. I make them for myself but I
can't see them just sitting in my computer not being used.
All I ask is you preserve the file name I give them and give credit if you use anything
made by me. Come show me your cards, if you make one !

Dog Days of Summer A2 DigiBorder Freebie

I've had such a good response on the Digital borders for the A2 size cards,
I decided to make a few more. This one is called Dog Days of Summer.
I made a card to show you how it will look printed on patterned paper.
The file is png (transparent). You can print on any color cardstock
or pattern paper. It prints as is 4"by 5" . I use it as the first layer on the
bottom base card . I tried my hand at a photo card this time. I printed
a picture of my grand-yorkie Roxie , cut the picture using Spellbinders
label 8. I also framed it in a larger Spellbinder label 8 that I popped up with
foam dimensionals. It will be a perfect
end of summer card for my daughter and granddaughter.
She'll love getting it in the mail. Click on the picture to open it
in another window for closer detail.

Download the file .....HERE at 4 shared.

I have more A2 card digi-borders over at SugarPawScraps blog .
They aren't pet themed but could be used on any card you need to make.
Please stop over and get them too.

Paw Bone Border for A2 card

I made a Paw Bone border for an A2 size card today.
I placed it on some digital pink dotted paper, so you can see how it will
print when using your own colored or patterned cardstock. The file is png (transparent except for the text/image) for that reason. It will print 4" by 5 " to
fit an A2 size card.
The file will not have the pink background
paper when you download it from 4 shared. Personal Use only please.
300 DPI for quality print.

You can get the file ....HERE

If you're interested in the Happy Birthday border for an A2 size card, please
go to SugarPawScraps for the download link address.
I have used them both on colored cardstock for one of the layers on the card front
and they look great. I have included a pet card I made using the Happy Birthday (at
Sugarpawscraps blog) border for you to see how cute it looks when finished.

Let me know if you make a card using either. I'd love to see it !
