Christmas Ornament

Meet today's simple card for the Holidays.
I wanted to play with this newly released stencil called Dotted Flakes.
By shifting the stencil after the first inking, I was able to create a whole new design.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by placing a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and placed the Dotted Flakes stencil over that.  
  • Using some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink, I inked up the whole stencil.  
  • I wanted to see what kind of design I could create using this stencil, so after inking, I shifted the stencil and inked again with some Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink.  It made a really pretty design for my background.
  • I cut a square piece of white cardstock and then die cut a circle from the center of it.
  • Next, I took a larger piece of white cardstock and inked all along the edges with more of the above mentioned colours to use as the larger background.  
  • I glued the white die cut circle panel over the stenciling and then glued that onto the larger inked background piece.  You can see all the colour variations along the edges of the card.
  • I inked another small piece of cardstock and die cut the ornament hook from that.  
  • I stamped the sentiment on some dark navy cardstock with Versamark and white heat embossed it.  I popped that over the middle of the circle.
  • Finally, I popped dotted the ornament hanger at the top of the circle.

Here is the stencil I used:
