ID: LJ731 - with one stencil 4 More Xmas cards

Created: October 24, 2010

I recently purchased Lynell's holy flourish stencil #LJ731 - it's gorgeous (you can also see some others I made with this stencil HERE).

All sentiment and quotes are from Quietfire Design.

I've been having a bit of trouble with the pastes I've recently bought - they've been a bit more liquid and have been seeping under the stencil. So I thought I'd try seeing if a Magnetic Mat (from Spellbinders) would work - and it worked like a charm, keeping the stencil flat and in place. Who'd a thunk...

I used Black Glossy paste for this one on white cardstock, sprinkling Ritz Micro Fine Glitter "Peridot" through a pipette, just on the leaves. Let that dry. Die cut the edge using Tim's On the Edge Brackets die. Repeating it on the black as a shadow, then doing it on the card front. which is narrower than the card itself.

Stamped the words best Wishes with Versafine Black Onyx. Added some Peel Off glitter dots.

I pounced a Perfect Medium pad through the stencil on black cardstock and embossed with clear then repeated the process in reverse to make a long piece which was then adhered to the inside border edge.

I mixed some white paste with a drop of Distress reinker "Peeled Paint", put a layer of the white, then skimmed over it with the green mix on white cardstock, let that dry.

Sponged Distress Peeled Paint along the edges then a touch of Frayed Burlap. Layered that to a deep green metallic cardstock, then onto an Olive main side folded & spliced card.

I Stamped the word "Tidings" with the black on the Olive cardstock, trimmed it down and layered to a sponged (same as stencilled piece) white cardstock. Stamped the rest of the quote on the metallic edge and embossed with Queen's Gold. Added Peel Off gold lines and gold half pearls on the edges and in the flourishes in various sizes.

Die cut with Spellbinders Labels 8 (largest die), dry embossed, and sponged some Distress Peel Paint around the edges. Layered to a bright Christmas green cardstock cut using the edge of the die, then adhered to the front flap of the easel.

Best Wishes was stamped with the black and a bunch of red buttons adhered to the floor of the card, then accented with dots using Rangers Glossy Black enamels.


This is another one done with a layer of white, then skimmed with the green mix from above. Let dry. Then dotted with the red fabric paint.
