Stenciled Hello

July 13, 2017

At the end of the school year, one of my students gave me beautiful card with an overlay made of think card stock. Being the person that I am, I turned that overlay into a stencil. I also made this background about a month ago, so I am not sure of the Distress Ink colors I used.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began with a white card base. I tape my DIY stencil and card base to my work surface. I used six colors of Distress Ink. I pounced the applicators instead of rubbing because of the delicate nature of the stencil. After I was finished, I removed the stencil and set the background aside to dry.

When I finally returned to my card, I knew I wanted to use the Hello Summer sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it on a scrap of white card stock. I used the same Distress Inks (I think) to ink blend the background. I round the corners on the panel and adhered it with foam tape.

Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Sea You Soon

Ink: Versa Fine

Distress Inks in pinks, reds, oranges, and yellows


Hope you enjoyed the card
