Much Joy



Meet today's card.  Traditional colours but a non-traditional pattern using the 
stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed it onto my Make Art Station.  I centered up the Flower Grid stencil and inked it up with some Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide ink.
  • When I was happy with the inking, I lifted the stencil off and cleaned it off.
  • I repositioned it, shifting it to the side to fill in the open areas and then inked it with some Rustic Wilderness DOX ink.
  • Next, I removed the stencil and die cut the JOY sentiment right from the middle of the stenciled panel.  I cut the shadow for the sentiment with some white cardstock and glued the 2 together.
  • I glued the stenciled panel onto a piece of green cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I popped the sentiment back into place over the card front with some foam tape, matching up the pattern.
  • Finally, I die cut 2 snowflakes with some red cardstock and the star with some green and glued them into place.  I added some white dots using my Posca pen.

Here is the stencil I used:

This is so colourful and very pretty Karen in wonderful seasonal colours, and the cut out 'Joy' stands out well with the white layer behind it. x
