Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I am sharing a Christmas card I created recently using a stencils. Earlier this year Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz released some new "Shifter" stencils, these stencils give you the ability to easily use two or more colors in your stencilled project. For my card today I used the Trees stencil, after positioning the stencil onto my card I applied green Distress Oxide inks onto the trees and then added brown to the trunks. I then removed the stencil, repositioned the stencil so I could add the blue trees.
I die cut the panel using Heffy Doodle's new Metric Stitched Rectangle die set, I love that a company has finally come up with a rectangle die set that caters for the countries that work in metric rather than inches.
I wanted the background to be the main focus of the card, so I kept the decoration fairly simple, using a rectangle from Hero Arts Infinity Rounded Rectangles die set and then added the die cut "Merry" sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
To finish off the card I added a few gems randomly around the card.
For the inside of the card I added a Christmas sentiment from Verses Rubber Stamps, I then used the tree stencil I used on the front of the card to add a few trees around the sentiment using the same colors I used on the front of the card.
