All Wrapped Up

Today's card features a new stencil from A Colorful Life Designs called Christmas Cover.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I masked the top part of my card panel, laid just the snowflake part of the stencil over the top part of my card front and inked it up with some Broken China Distress Oxide ink.  I shaded a bit with some Prize Ribbon DOX next.
  • When I was finished inking the top, I moved the masks and then moved the stencil down to the bottom area and inked again, this time including the bow.
  • I removed the stencil and stenciled just the bow again onto another piece of cardstock.  I did that because I wanted to fussy cut it out so I could pop it over the flat panel.
  • I did some inking in the background with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink to help fill in the white space, then splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • Next, using my Scor-bug, I scored some lines along the edges of the inking and into the white area.
  • I die cut the sentiment, then inked it up as well with the same colours as mentioned above and splattered.
  • I glued the panel onto and A2 sized card base and popped the sentiment up near the top of the panel.
  • I fussy cut out the bow I had inked up on a separate piece of cardstock and popped that over the stenciled background.  It worked so great and added a lot more interest then just leaving it flat.

Here is the stencil I used:

This is a really clever design and I love the way you have cut out an extra bow to adhere over the top which gives more great dimension Karen, and the centre added lines add texture there too, and the half blue half white die cut sentiment stands out beautifully...a gorgeous card. This company make such a lot of wonderful stencils, but the postage is huge which is a shame as like Annie I would definitely be buying a few of them. x
