Stencil it!

With the holidays over, decorations put away, it is time to finish my ‘thank you’ cards.  Even from my crafting table I can see the stack of them sitting, waiting to be filled out.  It’s a little sad that it isn’t an acceptable practice to send handmade cards that say ‘thank you’ that are blank on the inside.  In my mind, I’ve really doubled the recipients gain: I said, ‘thanks’ and they have a card at the ready.  😉

To make this card I cut an A2 panel out of a multi media card stock and painted it in Distress Paint in seedless preserve.  Once dry, I laid a stencil over top and covered it in a white matte modeling paste.  Cutting a second A2 panel from Neenah card stock, I trimmed it down to create a curved edge.

Then for the fun part!  Using a mix of Memento and My Favorite Thing inks I used images from a Waffle Flower set called Love to create the flower bouquet on my white panel.  I’m not going to lie, I had the help of my MISTI tool.  (I’m feeling a little like Gollum, from the Lord of the Rings, I want to rub it and call it ‘my precious’.  I digress.)  Hence why my inked flowers and leaves have such even ink coverage.

A few sequins, a lot of tape, and voila – one more blank ‘thank you’ card!  I hope you enjoyed it!
