Stenciled Christmas Cards

Hi everyone! We’ve made it through another week and it’s Friday again! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Basis Natural, Glama Brown Kraft, Kale Green and Bright Gold Foil cardstock. I’ve been in love with the Taylored Expressions Create-In-Quads Layering Stencils since I discovered them last year, and used the Mistletoe set for this project. Grab some cardstock, four inks and blending brushes, and BOOM, you have four focal panels with very little effort! And they don’t even need embellishments! Imagine that! ;)

I cut two top-folding and two side-folding standard A2 card bases from Basis Natural cardstock along with four layering panels from Kale Green cardstock and one layering panel from Bright Gold Foil. I created the four focal panels on Glama Brown Kraft cardstock using the Taylored Expressions Mistletoe Layering Stencils, Ranger peeled paint, pine needles, festive berries and candied apple distress inks, and blending brushes.

The front and inside sentiments are all from Taylored Expressions In & Out Christmas stamp set and all stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. I stamped two of the front sentiments directly on the focal panels and the other two on Basis Natural cardstock scraps, trimming one of them and using a My Favorite Things Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX to die cut the other one. Here are angled, frontal and inside shots of each. Love how they turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
