Good Morning
I had fun playing with this very unique Whirl Around stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a white cardstock panel and placed it onto my Waffle Flower Stencil Mat.  I laid the Whirl Around stencil over the paper, centering the design and inked it up with some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink.
  • I moved the stencil slightly and inked it again in some places with Rustic Wilderness DOX ink.  It gave a shadow look to the stenciled image.
  • I die cut a circle from the center using the Stitched Circles from Penny Black, then set that aside.
  • Using another piece of white cardstock, I stenciled again using the Dot Circle stencil also from ACLD.
  • I placed the stenciled piece into my Misti and stamped the flowers and the sentiment.
  • I glued the panel with the flowers onto some dark green cardstock, then onto an A2 size card base.
  • I popped the stenciled piece over the top using some foam tape, framing the stamped flowers and sentiment.

Here are the stencils I used:
