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 !
