A fun card today using this Ho Ho Ho Circle stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

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 positioned the Ho Ho Ho Circle stencil over that, closer to the top of my cardstock.
  • I inked the stencil up with some Candied Apple and then some Barn Door Distress Oxide inks along the edges.
  • Leaving the stencil in place, I splattered with my white Posca pen, then removed the stencil and let it dry.  
  • While that dried, I stamped the little Santa in my Misti, coloured him using my Copic Markers and fussy cut him out.
  • I sponged on some Barn Door DOX ink along the edges of my card front panel to add interest.
  • I stamped the sentiment strip next and set aside.
  • I glued the stenciled panel onto an A2 card base, then pop dotted the little Santa and the sentiment along the bottom edge.
  • I added 3 black gems to match the black in the Santa.

Here is the stencil I used:
