Part 2 of Making Christmas Cards with Stencils



Above:  the original print was made with 6" x 6" stencil Kaleid

With the exception of one, these cards were made on 6" x 6" greeting card blanks from JAMPaper.com, which also sells matching envelopes.  These blanks are made from sturdy cardstock that has a metallic sheen.

The above double-print was shown yesterday.  Today, below, I'm showing how I used the shape of the central figure in this print as a guide for cutting out a triangle.





Above left is the greeting card (before being folded.)  The built-in guide of the central shape made for easy cutting of a triangle, to become a Christmas tree. 

To make my other cards with Christmas tree covers, I used a template cut from scratch paper as my template.

  I traced around the template, then cut around it, creating the shapes on greeting cards below. 



Above:  It was hard to photograph this print on gold foil made with 6" x 6" stencil Ornamental Iron Curls, so this is Shot 1, with Shot 2 to follow.

Above:  Shot 2 -- the same card, shot from a different angle.

Above:  Unlike the others, this card was made on a  5" x 7" greeting card blank (Strathmore brand.)  The original print had been made with 6" x 6" stencil Kaleid

Tomorrow's post will move away from Christmas cards to show a stocking-stuffer gift and more cards, this time with candles cut from stencil-prints.

I'm happy to say that I've designed 70 stencils for StencilGirl.  The multiple pages of my stencils start here.
