    First, thank you for the free templates.
    However I was looking for the ‘fern’ template which isn’t one of the two you’ve linked in this tutorial. Could you please email me or add it to this post please.

      Sorry Sheri, there’s no template for the fern, just a measurement for it in the post. Thank you.
