Stenciled Christmas

Three more Christmas cards for today. I bought this snowflake stencil, by Echo Park, while I was at our Group Gathering. For this first card, I used soft silver ink. I matted with shimmery silver. I used the same shimmery silver paper for the sentiment and layered it with two layers of white cardstock for more dimension and strength.

I am entering these cards into the CAS Christmas Card challenge, which this month is to use snowflakes.
For this second card, I used a blue ink and matted with coordinating cardstock. I used gold foil to cut the sentiment, adding layers to it again.
I used a pink ink for this third card. I bought some cheap (Recollections) glitter paper at Michael's last week and the great thing about it is that I can use it for die cuts. I find that with the better quality glittery paper I can't use dies on it. I decided to also use the die to cut a hole in the card front and place the die-cut piece back into it. I placed a piece of green behind the die-cut opening.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

My favorite is the first one with the silver. Very pretty! I agree with you about die cutting glitter paper. Some just doesn't cut well.

Very pretty cards, even if all those snowflakes make me feel a little chilly. :) This design would be easy enough to mass produce. I have a snowflake background die that might work as a stencil. I'll have to give that a try.

Wow, three beautiful snowflake cards. You're perfect for the CAS Christmas card challenge, Lynette. Just your style! I never have trouble cutting any kind of glitter paper, EXCEPT some DCWV which I bought a whole pad of and it has some kind of plastic on the back which makes it impossible to die cut. Crazy!
