"Ornament"al Christmas Greetings

Stenciling. I did a lot of stenciling as a kid with my mom and sister. We made a ton of cards, placemats, presents. I loved being able to create! Stenciling is back in style, but in a grander way:


Stamps: Grateful Greetings, Sweet Centers
Paper: Mellow Moss, Ruby Red
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Garden Green (all Craft Ink)
Accessories: Big Shot, Ovals Bigz Die, Vintage Ornaments I Decor Stencils, Sponge Daubers

To Stencil, I just placed the piece down and held it (no tape this time), and used my sponge daubers and craft ink to color. I like mine dark as I always have, but I could have made the edges darker than the inside. I used my Big Shot to cut the oval, stencilled on it, and adhered it flat. I wanted this card to be quick, easy, striking, and mailable since my customers were making at the Stamp-a-Stack. The top of the ornament is from the Sweet Centers set. Ohh.. this Holiday Mini is amazing! Off to play some more!
