Gothic Arch -- Vintage Women

Vintage Women is the theme at today's Gothic Arches challenge.
I played around with distress inks for the background of this arch. I then used my vintage women stamp from Queens Dresser Drawers which I embossed in black.
The coupons are from Tim Holtz. The adventure definition is from Michael's $1 stamps.

I'm just catching up on blog reading. I thought I would stop in with a comment and a question. I love your cards as always. About the Arch. I've been admiring them for a while now and just yesterday this question occurred to me. Do you use a template, or a die cut, or what?
