I love making cards for people, it is a gift in itself and a truly thoughtful way to share our love of creative crafting! I also love to give blank cards, in a set, to someone for them to give someone else! It is a great little gift for teachers or as a hostess gift.
I used the 3 stencils below with a combination of spray mist & Staz-On Ink.
I started with the 12×12 Organic Matter Stencil on Bazzill white cardstock and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Blush.
I love that this stencil also has the reverse mask!
I used the Complicated Hearts and Graceful Moths 6×6 stencils on a piece of yellow Bazzill Mylar. I used both black and white Staz-On Ink and it worked great! I was a little worried it would smudge or not stencil clearly, but it was easy and dried beautifully!
I cut my cardstock down to 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ cards to mount onto a black card base. I also trimmed out all the mylar pieces I stenciled. I made extras and could make more cards or will save some for another project.
I made a simple formula for each card, layering 2 different doilies, gold thread and one of the mylar stencils on top.
I used the stencils from the Graceful Moths stencil, even though I thought they were butterflies!
I also added a tiny clothespin holding a sticker for a sentiment. They are all general and could be used for a variety of card needs!
I stacked the cards up with vellum envelopes, wrapped a piece of vellum around the stack and added one of the stenciled hearts and twine to hold it all together!
I hope this inspired you to give the gift of your creativity to someone else! Sort of like paying it forward, crafty style!! You can follow the links below to the stencils I used.
