Cardmaking - The Crafter's Workshop September 2015

Friday, September 25, 2015

I love making cards for people, it is a gift in itself and a truly thoughtful way to share our love of creative crafting!  I also love to give blank cards, in a set, to someone for  them to give someone else!  It is a great little gift for teachers or as a hostess gift.

I used the 3 stencils below with a combination of spray mist & Staz-On Ink.

I started with the 12×12 Organic Matter Stencil on Bazzill white cardstock and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Blush.

I used the Complicated Hearts and Graceful Moths 6×6 stencils on a piece of yellow Bazzill Mylar.  I used both black and white Staz-On Ink and it worked great!  I was a little worried it would smudge or not stencil clearly, but it was easy and dried beautifully!

I cut my cardstock down to 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ cards to mount onto a black card base.  I also trimmed out all the mylar pieces I stenciled.  I made extras and could make more cards or will save some for another project.

I made a simple formula for each card, layering 2 different doilies, gold thread and one of the mylar stencils on top.

 I used the stencils from the Graceful Moths stencil, even though I thought they were butterflies!

I also added a tiny clothespin holding a sticker for a sentiment.  They are all general and could be used for a variety of card needs!

I stacked the cards up with vellum envelopes, wrapped a piece of vellum around the stack and added one of the stenciled hearts and twine to hold it all together!

I hope this inspired you to give the gift of your creativity to someone else!  Sort of like paying it forward, crafty style!! :)  You can follow the links below to the stencils I used.
