Stenciled Fall Tree Card
By LeNae Gerig
Designer Tip: Before applying paint to the stencil, make sure it is not bent or warped. If it is then paint may seep under the stencil. You can use a hammer to pound it back into shape. If the paint is too runny, place some on a palette and let it air dry for 20 minutes to make the paint more stiff. This will cut down on the paint bleeding under the stencil
- Trace the stencil circle onto white cardstock and tape around the edges to secure the stencil to the cardstock. Apply a layer of copper to the tree and scrap off excess paint. Apply both bronze and gold to the leaves and parts of the branches. Sprinkle glitter into the wet paint. Remove tape and remove the stencil while the paint is still wet. Let the paint dry.
- Place the card fold at the left and cover with teal glimmer paper. Mat a 4 x 6 rectangle of golden sponged paper with white cardstock, leaving a 1/16 wide border. Mat a 2 x 5 strip of striped paper and mat both long edges with bronze glimmer paper and glue to the card, 1 from the bottom. Ink the edges of the Kindness cut-out with brown inkpad and glue to the bottom right corner.
- Cut out the circle around the tree and ink the edges brown. Tie green bow and glue to the tree trunk. Foam tape the circle to the card front.
- Inside the card: Cut an inverted V in a 1x3 length of striped paper and glue to the upper right corner of the card inside back. Foam tape the Thanks cut out over the label cut out and glue over the strip. Secure the mini brads on each side of the label.
