Merriest Wishes

Good Morning
Today's card features some stencil layering and stamping.
I used the 16 Circle Shadow and the Mixed Bars stencils 
from A Colorful Life Designs.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of white cardstock on my Make Art Station and placed the 16 Circle Shadow stencil over that.  I inked it up with some Cracked Pistachio and I shaded with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.
  • Leaving the circle stencil in place, I put the Mixed Bars stencil over the top of that and inked with some Rustic Wilderness DOX ink.
  • I removed the stencils but repositioned the circles into the open areas and inked with some more Cracked Pistachio DOX ink.
  • I placed the stenciled panel into my Misti to stamp the pine boughs and the grid patterns into the corners.
  • I splattered the whole panel with my white Posca pen and set aside to dry.
  • I die cut the sentiment from some green cardstock 2 times and then once from some beige cardstock and glued them all together.
  • I glued the stenciled card front onto another piece of beige cardstock, then onto an A2 card base.
  • I glued the sentiment onto the front panel and added 3 silver gems.

Here are the stencils I used:

Two more wonderful stencil combinations Karen and so pretty in the green tones with the added black pine branches and grids, and the large sentiment and silver gems finish it perfectly. x
