Thanks for Being Awesome


Hey everyone – Jennifer here with one last stenciling idea for you before the challenge closes tonight! I’m rediscovering my love of vellum and decided to use it as a means to soften my stenciled image. I love bright, bold colors on a card but sometimes they make it hard to read or see your sentiment…vellum to the rescue!

I started by using my Deco Pattern stencil to jazz up some white cardstock with three colors of ink – Butter Bar, Cornflower Blue, and Green Hills.

2015-04-28 21.47.59While that dried a little (it doesn’t take long), I cut a piece of vellum the same size as my stenciled piece, 4″x5.25″, and heat embossed a sentiment in gold using the Thanks Stamp & Cuts set.

See how you can read the sentiment and still see the stenciled pattern? Perfect! I used a bit of vellum adhesive on just the top of the panel so you can still flip it up and see the stenciling if you wish.

Some adhesive to stick the whole panel down to some Candy Apple Bazzil cardstock and this fun card was done! Super quick and easy with stunning results.
