For Baby

Time for February new releases from A Colorful Life Designs.
When I saw this fun stencil called Crazy Circles, I wanted to use it to make a baby card.

So here's what I came up with.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and positioned the Crazy Circles stencil over it on my Make Art Station.
  • I got out some colours of Distress Oxide inks that would give a rainbow effect to my card. Beginning at the top, I inked it up with some Mustard Seed.  I continued inking up the stencil, working my way down with some Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers.
  • I removed the stencil and cut the panel into 4 pieces just to give a bit of a different look.
  • I glued a piece of heavy cardboard on the back of each cut piece to help pop it up a bit and then glued that onto a white A2 card base.
  • I die cut the sentiment with some blue and then some white and glued them together offsetting them a big.  I glued that over the stenciled background.
  • Finally, I added 3 gems that look weird in the photo because they are so reflective but they are green.

Here is the stencil I used:
