I then ran it through my die-cut machine; making sure to catch all of the pieces as they came out. I then cut the letters twice more from white cardstock and adhered them all together to create thick faux veneer-style letters.
I added the stenciled background to a piece of Forest Glades Cardstock and adhered it to an A2 notecard. I then added the letters using foam tape. I decided to add them with a slight drop shadow so that the green card below stood out more.
Next, I cut my sub-sentiment using the Sweet Sentiments Die Set and added it to the card. I love how the bold letters and the smaller ornate words juxtapose.
Focal Die-Cut Panel
My final card uses a piece of the stenciled background left over from the previous card as a die-cut panel. (Waste not, want not as my Nan used to say!)
I decided that the card needed a bold sentiment as there were a lot of “girly” florals going on.
After much deliberation, I settled on the Mega Label Love Stamp Set. I stamped the words “Happy” and “Birthday” onto a smooth white cardstock using Raw Amber Ink. I then placed them onto my card using foam tape.
