Here I go with another stenciled card design, because the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper makes it so much fun!
First, I held the stencil on top of Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/4″ X 4″, and used a Blending Brush to apply Pool Party Ink. I tapped the brush around the edge to not disturb the stencil, with a very light touch in the center. Don’t worry if the stencil moves a little bit, because you can reposition it.
Once I was happy with the amount of ink applied, I used the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting. This die was just the right size to make a nice border.
Next, I stamped the sentiment, from the Simply Succulents Stamp Set, in Pool Party Ink. See why I wanted it lighter in the middle? I used the Stamparatus to make sure the sentiment was dark enough. It’s a good thing, because I ended up stamping it three times.
Before gluing my stenciled piece to the Thick Basic White card base, I embossed the front of the card base with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder for some texture.
To bring in some color, I found a Special Days flower die to cut small flowers from Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride Cardstock. I also added three Opal Rounds for interest.
I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.
