I chose a template. I've never used a paper template before and am at a bit of a loss as to what I'm supposed to do with it.

It's Edgers Midwinter... I can clip a paper to it to make a layer for my card. Right?

Yikes! I have a huge stash of templates to go through to find one that I like for my card. Off I go to hunt one down.

 

Maybe I should check out the boutique for a Halloween Template. Now I'm off to the boutique to hunt one down, and there is a sale going on too. Woo Hoo!

You are creating the background for your card. The only requirement is that you use a paper template to do it.

You can go ahead and create your card background with the paper template you choose!

confused on the terminology here....paper template...what is that? is that like a transparency? is it a grayscale patterned paper that needs color? like the ScrapSimple monthly club?

 

I need some visuals please. Are either of these a paper template?

can we use more than one paper template to create the background. I'm thinking of a artsy one with a snowflake one to add dimension. that legal? :)

Yes Amy those are both SS Paper Templates! A grayscale that you use to color your own way or clip a premade paper to!

That is fine as long as you use one to make your background! So two is twice as good ;)
