Ellen Hutson has an online shoppe - http://www.ellenhutson.com/ - and sells wonderful paper piecing templates. I bought a couple and tried them out...needing baby cards I created these two rapidly...and since they are to be hand-delivered I decided to make them square. 'congratulations' sentiment is from Impress; cute baby diaper pins are Jolee's By You. White cardstock is from Ellen's store too - fabulous Neenah brand...a sheer joy to work with! I recommend Ellen's paper piercer - it is a precision instrument and far better than any I have tried (Making Memories & SU are the two brands I have used). When piercing, I recommend continuing the length of the design across the entire card front, even if a portion of the pierced area will be disguised by a design element. The reason for this is one will see the piercing design on the card inside, and I think it looks better if the design piercing line is complete when viewing the inside of the card...I didn't do this on the first one, and ended up stamping a little flower on the 'bare spot'. :)
finished card size: 4-3/4" square (envelopes - good deal on 5" square envelopes at www.clearbags.com).
