Quick and Easy Christmas Cards


I've cut simple shapes from papers printed with acrylic paints and a variety of stencils, then glued them to blank greeting cards to create collages --







The Christmas trees above were cut from a thick gold foil printed with several layered paint applications using my 9"X 12" Mimosa stencil and another favorite of mine, Feathers and Lattice by Daniella Woolf.

Flames for the Christmas candles below were free-hand cut from assorted papers:


ABOVE:  MY STENCIL BORDERS # 1 WAS USED TO CREATE THE COLUMN OF THIS CANDLE.

ABOVE:  MY STENCIL VINTAGE SCRIPT WAS USED TO CREATE THE COLUMN OF THIS CANDLE.

ABOVE:  MY STENCIL BORDERS # 1 WAS USED TO CREATE THE COLUMN OF THIS CANDLE.

Above:  Like all three stencils in my 9" x 12" Borders series, Borders # 1 stencil comes with three borders.  The far-left border is the one used in making today's prints.
Above:  Vintage Script stencil (9" x 12") was used to make a print that was cut down to form one of the pillar candles in this post.

(Altho I didn't use a template for these candle flames, they can also be created by tracing inside the openings of stencils like Cornish Petals Stencil Large by Lizzie Mayne and/or Cascading Feathers Stencil by Jessica Sporn.)

Thanks for visiting today!

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