Very Merry

I'm combining 2 stencils today to create a fun background.
I used the Halftone Circle stencil with the Classic Snowflake 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 put the Classic Snowflake stencil over my paper and inked it up with some Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide ink.
  • I lifted that stencil off and placed the Halftone Circle stencil over the inked snowflakes and then inked that stencil with some Crackling Campfire DOX ink.  I rotated the stencil and inked again just to fill in some of the open areas.
  • I rubbed some Lumberjack Plaid ink onto a scrap of white cardstock, splattered with my white Posca pen and then die cut the letters from that.
  • Next, I die cut a circle and glued the sentiment onto that and stamped the holly branches.  
  • I glued my card front onto a piece of dark red cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I used some foam tape to pop the circle over the background.
  • Finally, I added some silver gems under the sentiment.

Here are the stencils I used:
