Tickets Anyone?

Are you ready for another preview of our templates and matching embellishments? Well wait not more! 

Today, we have two different but very similar designs. Let's start with our single ticket. Isn't it cute? The template will let you create custom made tickets to your heart's content. Or you can add paint or ink to the ticket shape. Or use both together!

One thing I've always wanted with templates is to have both the positive and negative images so that I could layer the design. Now that wish is a reality.

Lastly is our double ticket design. Even cuter than the single ticket design right? Two overlapping tickets at once. You wouldn't believe how many ideas I have in mind using both of these designs. So stay tuned for future posts showing how these beauties were used.
