It’s New Year’s Eve! I hope you’re rested and ready to stay up late to ring in 2019! Today I’m playing with the Petal Burst Stencil from the store because the finished card reminds me of a firework!
There’s loads of new stencils in the store to work with. You can see them all here. The color combinations are only limited to your imagination. I used only four colors of distress ink – Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Pumpkin and Candied Apple.
I started by cutting a panel of white card stock the same size as the stencil (6×6″). I adhered the panel to my glass craft mat with double sided tape. Then I taped the stencil over the panel with removable wash tape and inked Candied Apple in all four openings. Next I wiped the stencil with a cloth to remove any excess ink, rotated the stencil, adhered it in place and inked the Spiced Pumpkin.
The stencil has marks etched into the plastic to help you align each turn of the petals.
When all the layers were inked and dried I cut the panel to 5″ square and adhered it to a 5.25″ square card base.
I attached a glue dot to the center of the inked panel and carefully arranged gold twine in a flower panel to the card base. The sticky string center is covered with a Big Hello Sugar Script die cut sentiment. Additional gold enamel dots were added to keep the twine in place and add extra glimmer.
Wishing you a healthy and happy 2019! And in case you missed it..
Better hurry! Today is the last day of our After Christmas Sale!
Finished Size 5.25 x 5.25″
