Designer Tip: Trace this detailed stencil onto your card, then color with watercolor pencils.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Card front: Place your card with the fold on the top. Cut 1 1/2" off of the right side.
  2. Place the Reindeer stencil on the card with the bottom of the stocking cutouts 1 1/8" from the bottom edge. Use stencil tape to hold in place. Trace the shapes on the stencil with the pen, then remove the stencil.
  3. Using water and the paintbrush, swipe the wet brush across the pencil lead to pick up colorant and use it to paint the images. For the left stocking I used pencil #'s 133 & 250. Middle stocking: #'s 108 & 121. Right stocking: #'s 133, 166 & 108. Stocking stuffers: a combination of the same colors mentioned. Go over some areas with #251 for highlights.
