I had to make a few thank you cards for gifts I received this Christmas. I saw this post on the Taylored Expressions blog and thought these cards were so colorful and beautiful. However, I wanted something with snowflakes. So I searched my stencils and cover plates and found one of each I could use. Here's the first card I made.
I used a very intricate stencil on this card. I had to pounce the ink onto the cardstock for fear of breaking the delicate parts of the stencil. I wanted to use white snowflakes, but they sort of got lost on the panel. So I used colored cardstock to match some of the inks.
Here's the next card. I thought I was going to lose my mind on this one! I die cut this cover plate with masking paper. OMGosh trying to get all those little pieces out was tedious to say the least! I had pieces stuck to my fingers, clothes, the floor...all over everything! And the mask could only be used once, so there is only one of these! I used the same colors, however I didn't have to pounce the ink over the mask. I could sponge it on. The colors are a bit more intense. There is shimmer spritz on the snowflakes too.
These took much longer than I anticipated because of the intricacies of the stencil and die, but I enjoyed the time making them.
