Stencil and Layer Birthday Card

I was inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video, “Custom Stamp Layering”, that I watched over the weekend.

I used a stencil and ink to create the floral pattern. The smaller panel was cut out of the larger panel with a die (and I replaced it with plain white cardstock, so the layers would be supported). I did not use a layer of foam under the smaller panel – I did not want to incur extra postage!

Supplies: Stamp – Clearly Besotted, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, die – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Heidi Swapp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.
