Hey, everyone! I am popping in today with more Christmas inspiration to share with you using products from Taylored Expressions. I sat down to create with some stenciled panels that I did a while ago and this set of Mini Slim sized Christmas cards were the result!
The stenciled panels were done with the Poinsettia & Pine stencil and if you look close, you will see that there is dimension, sparkle, and shine. To create the effect, I mixed Metallix Gel with glitter and then applied it through the stencil onto Toffee and Honey cardstock. One mixture is the champagne colored Metallix Gel mixed with a white gold glitter and the other mixture is the pearl Metallix Gel mixed with an iridescent glitter. As you can imagine, it is a bit messy to do! I made a bunch of panels at one time to take advantage of having everything out and only having to clean up the mess once (for this project, anyways!)
It was fun to come across the stenciled panels when I was planning these cards and use them as a jumping off point for the design.
I die cut the stenciled panels using a Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets die and added it to a Mini Slim sized card base (3.5" x 7"). The sentiment on the card is created by clipping the 'happy' word out of the Framed Script - Happy die cut and pairing it with 'Christmas' banner stamped using the On Repeat - Christmas stamp and cut out with the coordinating On Repeat die. I tucked a pine sprig and felt flower in and around the sentiment and added a few silver drip drops for a bit of shine to finish things off.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I will be back again soon with more crafty inspiration to share!
