Hello everyone! Today I wanted to show you an easy-yet-awesome Christmas card, just to (gently) get those holiday wheels turning… Because eventually, Christmas WILL be here (sorry for the shocker!) I love most things kraft, but you could just as easily stencil onto different cardstock or patterned paper to get the look you want. This card was created by our wonderful LeNae, who used Hot Off The Press’ brand new Swirly Christmas Tree Stencil. Take a look!
Merry Christmas Tree Card by LeNae Gerig
Designer’s Tip: Cover card with red Family Ties paper and ink edges of 4¾”x6¼” kraft cardstock black. Secure the Swirly Christmas Tree stencil with stencil tape and apply Mowed Lawn ink using the stylus and pad (or a cosmetic wedge). Apply Gold Inka-Gold randomly over the tree. Place the star/swirl at the top of the tree and apply Inka-Gold. Outline the swirl with gold glitter glue and add dots of glitter glue to the tree. Stencil a portion of the swirl on top corners with ink and Inka-Gold.

I really, really like this stencil! It’s perfect for your Christmas cards, and stenciling is so darn easy! Just add your ink, embossing paste, Inka-Gold or anything else (I’m sure you have something!) and it’s ready for you to embellish. Or just add a greeting—whatever look you choose, the beautiful, ornate design makes a really special focal!
