http://forum.make-the-cut.com/discussion/25151/webinar-homework#latest. (There are a few others scattered about in other threads(search the forum for stencil card) but this gets you to the bulk of them).
As a result, I decided to give a hand at trying them myself. Some of the ideas I had considered making others had already done and I didn't want to recreate a similar card. So I looked for images that I had not yet seen done. I choose an ice cream cone and a lighthouse. While I was looking for free stencils that would work for this style of card, I ran across a sailboat that I really liked but didn't think was suited for putting on the edge of the card. As a result, I chose to simply put it on the front of the card. The pictures show the sample cards that I cut out to test my files. The ice cream cone also contains a "print and cut" colored ice cream cone that I used behind my "stenciled" emage to add a pop of color to it. This can also be "split" and the pieces used to create a paper piecing of an ice cream cone. All cards have an insert to cut for the inside. I think they would look great using vellum too. Finally, the sailboat card also has a "stitching line" that I used to create a stitched look with a marker on one of my cutters. I think I will use the ice cream cone card either as a birthday or a simple "hello" card. The lighthouse and sailboat may get used for father's day cards for my DH and my FIL. Sadly my father is passed away so I cannot share one of my cards with him! If I don't use them for Father's day they could be used for several other things as well don't you think!
I created my original files in MTC but have exported them out into SVG for use by others with different software. I hope that you like them and would like to see what you do with the file(s).
The files are loaded into my public folder in my dropbox account. You may find it necessary to do a right click and "save as" or "save target as" to save to your computer.
