Stenciled Get Well Card


I found a huge 12x12 stencil I'd bought some years ago - probably with the intention of decorating a wall; and then never used it (thank goodness!) That's a good thing considering the big design on this stencil. I had to shake my head and wonder what I was thinking when I bought it? LOL I used one edge of it to make this card, so now I can say the stencil is used :) It's made by Delta Crafts.com.
I sponged on distress inks of Peeled Paint, Twisted Citron, and Picked Raspberry and added a SNSS sentiment and some pink pearl pen drops. I placed this on a Melon Mambo card base and called it done. It's not often you see a one-layer card from me, so surprise!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Shopping our Stash SOS#343 - used a stashed stencil



Thanks for stopping by to say hello and have yourself a fine day!

I had to look twice to make sure you were the one to do this since it's not your usual type of card. I actually love it though! The part of the stencil you used is so pretty. Love it!

Glad you found this NBUS and put to such good use. You said you sponged the inks, but honestly, it has a beautiful watercolor look to it. You've found another technique that works great for you, as this is really pretty & love the pink & green theme! I'm ready for spring! (and this will be a great encouragement card). TFS & Hugs

Great use of the stencil! Those distress inks blend so well don't they?! Love the colors you choose, so pretty! Stay safe in the high winds that are on the way!

Great CAS card! Don't want to think about how many unused stencils I may have in my craft room. Maybe I should go and give them another look!

Sweet colors and a lovely spring feel with your oversized stencil!! You have done so well using it!
We need spring so much, the weather is so cold and also here -on the sea!- there is snow, such a surprise!

Wendy said...

How pretty and springy is this??!! Really love how you created this card using stencils! I use to have a few stencils that I used in my old house on the walls but got rid of them when we moved, sadly. This card is sure to brighten someones day, Carol! Hugs~

Ha Ha.. I have some of those biggies! You really did a good job using it. Now I have to go looking to see what I am missing... LOL. It came out awesome, Carol!

A lovely CAS card Carol. Reminding me I should get out my long forgotten stencils. Can you believe I have a metal box full that I keep under my desk that I rest my feet on when I'm crafting! Barbxx

I love the unadorned clean cards Sometimes the cards are more art work not suitable for mail .......Lis
