Let's Celebrate!

Today's card has a great festive, happy feel to it.
I used the new for March 
stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.
I paired it up with and older release called Round Fragments to add more interest to the flowers.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I place the Heart Flowers stencil over a piece of white cardstock and inked it up with some Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink.  
  • I took out the Round Fragments stencil and masked around a few of the elements on it to use as the flower centers.  I placed those over the flower centers and inked with some Lumberjack Plaid DOX ink.
  • Using the eraser end of a pencil, I added the dots randomly around the flowers using the same colours as mentioned above.
  • Next, I splattered the whole panel with my white Posca pen to add interest.
  • I die cut the sentiment from some red cardstock and the sentiment shadow from the center of the stenciled flowers.  I glued the red sentiment die cut onto the shadow.
  • I glued the stenciled panel onto a piece of red cardstock and then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I used some foam tape to pop the sentiment over the area that I had die cut away.

Here are the stencils I used:

A beautiful mix with the flowers and fragments stencilling Karen, and love the bright colours, and the added large sentiment cut from this piece and inlaid with the letters in a darker tone which really makes them stand out...a terrific card. x
