Another stencil card

The picture didn't come out that great, but I still wanted to post this card.  I did this card by using stencils on a black piece of cardstock.  You'd never get colors like this using ink! lol  My good friend Diane gave me her set of chalks since she wasn't using them anymore, so I had to make her a card using the chalks to thank her :-) 

For this card I used the flower stencil from Darcy's Designs, SU Stampin' pastels chalk, and PTI's Everday Classics stamp set.  In the corners I used an EK Success corner punch.  What I did was take the black card stock and I layed it on top of the white cardstock.  I lined it up to where I wanted it and softly drew pencil lines in the corners - that way I could line up the corner punch so that I'd get a perfect fit for the cardstock ;-)  For the mat behind the seniment I punched out a scallop and then trimmed it to be a mat.

Thank you Diane!  Love ya!

Tools used: SU Stampin' Pastel Chalks, flower stencil, Everyday Classics stamp (PTI), corner punch, scallop punch

  1. This card is so much nicer in person. The darker black offsets the bright colors used on the stencil!

    Love ya too! You are so welcome for the chalks! I wasn't using them so I was glad to have them live with you!
