Two More Holly Holiday Stenciled Cards

Hi everyone - I'm back with one last entry for Just Us Girls' Anything Goes with Stencils - Challenge #715. Since I still need Christmas cards for the stash, I finished the other two stenciled images from yesterday's post.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White;
My Favorite Things Very Merry 6x6"
Stencils - Taylored Expressions Triple Slim Layering Stencil - Holly Holiday
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Mini Slimline Backdrop Set
Betterpress Plate with Die - Merry & Bright Sentiment Strips
Other - various Hero Arts inks; Betterpress Black ink; Hero Arts flower gem

The Taylored Expressions stencil set yields 3 mini slim images; you can see the 4-stencil process photos HERE, if you're interested. For this card, I decided to use the 3x5.5" die cut panel on an A2 card. A fun Christmas pattern from MFT in matching colors filled the balance of the card front. I used a Betterpress sentiment from the stash I created a couple weeks ago & added a flower gem as the "star" to this leafy "tree".

For the third of the images, I die cut using the next smaller of the AJVD mini slimline layers and added a green mat. Adhered to a mini slim card formed from 6x7" Paper Studio pastel heavyweight cardstock. I added Hero Arts honey lacquer to the flower centers & another Betterpress sentiment.

Here's the view of the stenciled panel I shared yesterday along with a group shot of the three finished cards:

I'll also link up to the current Christmas Craft Creations Challenge to use Stencils or Embossing Folders. I haven't played there in quite a while but was inspired by my friend Jo (Jo Blogs) to join in.

Thanks for visiting!
