CASED Stencil Christmas Cards


I found a card on Pinterest that I just loved and clicked over to the blog and found the original which was a couple years old here. As you can see if you click the link, I CASED the idea but of course used my own stamps and a red cardbase. I loved Ingrid's so much I had to go to Stamplorations and order the same stencil she used (Artplorations Christmas Trees stencil.) I followed her directions and stamped a background musical joy stamp from Hero Arts through the stencil, then sponged with Lucky Clover and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks before removing the stencil. I added a Gina K Merry Christmas to the bottom of the card front. 

The stencil from Stamplorations also has a Christmas tree made out of circles so I stamped and sponged through that one too. Both cards have the same stamped inside- a pretty ornament from the Gina K set and a perfect sentiment from Verve and here are pictures of the other card front and the inside of the cards:



Since it is the most wonderful time of the year, I am wishing you and yours Happy Holidays and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Beautiful cards Karen - I love that tree shape, and the stamped sponging is so very effective.
Christmas blessings to you and yours
