Hello everyone!! Nora here from A Creative Touch with a fun card using masking and stenciling to create a striped background.
To start my card, I used a white panel that was cut to 4" by 5 1/4" and created some different colored stripes. The stripes were made by masking off areas of my cardstock with thin masking tape. I then blended different blue inks between the taped off areas.
To give the stripes more of a kick, I then used the new Love Ribbon Stencil and the same colored ink as the stripes to stencil on some hearts.
I adhered the finished panel to a blue A2, top folding card base.
I then die cut the "friend" out of navy blue cardstock using the Sweet Friend Fri-dies. I adhered the die cut on the card front, as shown, and covered it with an Aqua Shimmer pen and Glossy Accents. I use this technique on my cards a lot as it gives the look of dimension without the bulk.
Next I stamped the sentiment in navy blue on a white cardstock strip using the new Terrific Flowers stamp set. I used foam adhesive to adhere the sentiment strip under the die cut and the
card was complete.
I hope this card makes you look at your stencils differently and that you give this technique a try.
