Stencil as a focal point

Hey you all, Anni here!
Are you having a wonderful weekend? Do you have some time for crafting?

For today's card I knew I wanted to use the snowmen stencil! This is such an unique stencil as you cannot only use it for a background but also as a focal point on your card! That is what I wanted to try on my card!

  • Place the stencil where you want the snowmen on your card and dabb some white pigment ink over it. Leave the hat out!
  • Cover the rest of the snowmen with post it tape or something similar and use versamark ink on the hat! Emboss it with black embossing powder!
  • Cut two noses from orange paper and use black pearls as eyes!
  • Add a snowbank so the snowmen have something to "stand on"!
  • Add a sentiment!

  • Be careful with the white pigment ink as it takes a loooooonnng time to dry!
  • If you don't have black pearls you can use your alcohol markers to color the pearls you have in whatever color you need!
  • My versamark ink pad was quiet juicy! So I ended up with an uneven edge on my hat! I fixed it with a black marker and no one will ever know!
  • I added a stripe of orange paper to my sentiment to bring the card together! Before the sentiment looked a little lost floating in the upper right corner!
