Deck the Halls

Hello blog friends!

I want to share with you a card that I made way back in 2018 for the Crafts Beautiful Christmas Special. I still have it and thought it would be nice to show it.

It uses an ingenious stencil by Clarity Stamp. The circular stencil is made up of two layers, the lower one has the images cut out and the top one has an aperture. You place the aperture over the image you wish to stencil and the rest of the disc masks any ink or medium from marking your work.

The stencil I used is the 7" Wheelie Bauble Stencil and I teamed it up with bright, zingy colours to create a fun background.

What you need...

Stencil: Wheelie Bauble Stencil 7" - ClarityStamp
Card stock: Teal; Stencil Card 7" x 7" (50 Sheets) - ClarityStamp; 
Paint: Fresh Lime, Bubblegum Pink, Post Box Red, Calypso Teal - Dylusions
Stencil brush
Christmas phrase stamp
Ink pad: Extreme Black - My Favorite Things
Ribbon; lime green

What you do...

1 Cut a piece of the stencil card to 11cm x 15cm and stencil baubles randomly over the surface using different colours and bauble shapes. Leave the centre of the bauble paler to give the illusion of light reflecting off the bauble.

2 Cover a 10.5cm x 14.5cm blank with teal card.

3 Trim the bauble card to 10cm x 14cm and mat centrally onto the blank.

4 Stamp the sentiment onto white card, trim and mat onto a slightly larger piece of teal card. Attach to the blank and finish with a lime green bow.

The sentiment I used is from the Festive Greetings stamp set by WPlus9, but any large font word(s) will work.

This card uses bright, modern colours, but you could use more traditional colours if you wish.

At the time of writing this blog the stencil is £5.99 and the stencil card is £7.98. Click here to take you to the ClarityStamp website.

I know most of you will now have finished your Christmas makes, but it never too early to start for next year.

I hope to be back soon with another couple of Christmas makes so watch this space.

Thank you for stopping by! x
