Stenciling works well on angles, and I combined it with texture in today’s project.

Welcoming Angles


My idea began with this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.


I decided on a Bermuda Bay card base topped with Pool Party. Then, I chose a piece of Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper for my stencil. Holding the stencil at an angle that approximated the sketch, I used a Sponge Dauber with Bermuda Bay ink to create the pretty, floral design.


Next, I lined up the Subtle Textured embossing folder with the stenciled design, and ran it through the Big Shot to create the texture on the top half of the card.


I knew I wanted to say, “welcome,” because this card is for a new neighbor who is having an open house on Friday. The word is from the Well Written die set, which I cut From Bermuda Bay cardstock to match the card base.


But, my card needed some color, so I added a branch in Lemon Lime Twist, and the cute, little, bird in Flirty Flamingo. The branch and bird were also in the Well Written die set.

The last detail was three, little, Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.


I hope you enjoyed today’s project. If you haven’t tried stenciling, give it a try. I must warn you, though; it’s addictive!

The Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut DSP is retiring, so order before it’s no longer available. Thanks for shopping!
