Vibrant Stencil Christmas Card

Stencilling has become very popular in the craft world, especially when used with cardmaking and also for home décor. It’s easy to get started, a thin sheet, usually made from mylar with a design cut out, is laid onto a surface, then ink or paint applied using a brush or sponge. I have chosen a stencil with bold bauble images and teamed it up with bright, punchy colours to create a decorative background. The stencil uses an ingenious wheel, so that only one image is exposed at a time, meaning you are less likely to go over the edge and ruin your work. A simple sentiment is then added to create a bright, jolly card for Christmas.
