More Christmas Cards

Today's post starts with this Christmas card -- 

The above Christmas card was created with Winter Berries Mask; I used it both in creating the background as well as decorating the textured foil rectabngle that forms the pillar candle.

Winter Berries Mask itself looks like this --

The next card in today's post took more time to develop.

First, I gathered prints I'd made with two 6" x 6" stencils --  Marbles 6 stencil and Sprigs.

Secondly, copying an idea from a commercial greeting card, I drew three Magi on scrap paper.

My third step was to cut out each of the scrap paper figures.  One at a time, I used these as patterns -- I placed them over the stencil-prints and traced around their edges with colored pencils that matched the colors that had been used in printing them.  (Matching colors make the tracing lines look less obvious.)

Next, I used fine-detail scissors to cut out the shapes of the Magi from the stencil-prints.

I glued them to the cover of a greeting card blank to make the card below --

The far-left and far-right Magi were cut from prints made with 6" x 6" stencil Sprigs --

And the center Magi was cut from a print made using 6" x 6" Marbles 6 stencil...

The star was a freehand cut-out.  Or you can join StencilClub and buy the star-themed 3-part stencil set by Mary C. Nasser, which came out August 2017.
