Hello there. Cardz 4 Galz has started a new challenge. This time the theme chosen by Helen is ‘New Year or New Stash‘. Here is my card:
This card was created using a new stencil from Pinkfresh Studio – a layering stencil – which I’m finding I enjoy using………as long as I keep everything today and don’t get any ink smudges – which happens quite a lot…..
I also used the hint and tip from a few YouTube videos about using the Misti to line the stencil up and keep everything straight – worked very well for me. No longer did I have to tape each layer down – just used the Misti magnets and kept moving them around. I did notice that it worked best when the stamping mat was removed first – some more of the edge to keep the papers and stencils straight.
I used Distress Inks for the stenciling and then die cut that piece to fit the inside of an A2 card base:
I had a plan in mind – but it took me quite a while to figure it out….
The front panel was cut using a hillside border, and that top part embossed using an Altenew debossing panel. I then added some acetate at the back, to hopefully create a window.
The part that was cut from the front panel was cut to size – leaving the ‘window’ in the middle – stamped with an MFT sentiment, and attached to the bottom of the acetate.
The back of this front panel looked a little ragged – sticky showing through the acetate – so I managed to create two backing panels the same as the front to hide all the mess. Some red dots added for some more colour and interest on the front.
I hope you can come and join us – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery.
