The new release from i-crafter is available today, and man, I’m in love! There are some really fun Halloween dies (I’ll share a pretty Halloween card tomorrow. Yes, there is such a thing.) But before we jump ahead, I want to share a fall floral card, using the new Fence Link Stencil. Isn’t it pretty?
For this card, I wanted to create a subtle background that would add creamy texture to my autumn floral sprig. The Fence Link Stencil is perfect! First, I stenciled on Antique Linen Distress Oxide. Then, I cleaned my stencil, flipped it over, like turning the page of a book, and shifted it down and over one row, so it completely covered the first color, before stenciling on Tea Dye Distress Oxide ink. When I removed the stencil, the two colors nestled right next to each other and created a lovely intertwined pattern. (You could used shades of grey to create a chain link fence for a masculine card too.) I decided to mark an arrow on my stencil, to remind myself which way to flip it.
After the panel was ready, I got to work on the florals. Instead of cutting them from colored cardstock, I decided to blend and ink smoosh panels, so they’d have more interest. I created panels in teal, coral, and light and dark green inks. Splatter is always fun too, so I splattered the panels with concentrated ink, and my stenciled panel too, while I was at it. Then I die cut leaves flowers, and the word FALL from several sets in my stash. I’ve listed them below, in case you are looking for the same specific sets, but shop your stash first. Chances are, you already have some great florals.
To pull the card together, I trimmed my stenciled panel down to 2 7/8″ x 5 7/8″ and mounted it to a mini-slimline card base (3 1/4″ x 6 1/4″). Then, I arranged the florals in the right corner of the card, with the word FALL just to the left. I heat embossed a stamped sentiment on a dark teal scrap and trimmed it to fit. I just love the way it turned out!
Here is the supply list for this card..
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget to head on over to i-crafter to check out the entire new release; it’s AWESOME! Like I mentioned above, I’ll be back tomorrow with a pretty little Halloween card to share. I know that sounds like a strange combo, pretty and Halloween, but think Haunted Mansion. That was sort of my inspiration. I can’t wait to show you; see you tomorrow!
