Holly stencil card
By LeNae Gerig
Designer Tip: It is very important to let the paint dry before replacing the stencil and adding a second color. 1-2 hours is usually enough time.
- Place the card fold at the top. Cover the card with green holly paper. Glue a 2 wide strip of red diamond paper 1/2 from the fold. Stamp Seasons Greetings on the red strip, 1/2 from the top edge.
- Mat a 2 1/4x4 1/2 green words rectangle with white vellum, leaving a 1/4 wide border. Glue to the card center.
- Cut a 1 1/2x4 rectangle of white cardstock. Use stencil tape to tape off the portion of the stencil with berries. Center the stencil on the rectangle. Use applicator to apply green over the leaves portion of the stencil. Remove stencil and let dry. Clean and replace stencil and tape off holly portion. Apply red to berry section. Remove stencil and let dry.
- Mat the white cardstock rectangle with red glimmer paper, leaving a 1/16 wide border. Glue centered on the green words rectangle. Knot lengths of red gingham ribbon and glue to the left and right of the holly rectangle.
