Double Duty for Your Stencils

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials6 Comments

Today’s card project features using a stencil for both applying color as well as dry embossing a pattern onto cardstock. I really love getting more use out of a product and stencils can be pretty versatile tools! The stencil and stamps I’m using today are from Gina K. Designs’ A Big Hello Card Kit, a huge new card kit full of spring images, plants, hearts, dies and more! Check out all that’s in the kit:

I wanted to create a simple encouragement card featuring one of the plant stamps and dies, along with the Heartfelt stencil.

I love how the texture on the Innocent Pink card panel mirrors the stamping on the white card base below.

Here is a video showing you how I created this card project:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
