Kraft Christmas Card Using a Stencil
When I looked at the stencils I own, none of them really said "Christmas" to me. So, they are still in their packaging. However, I REALLY wanted to play along with the Bah Humbug Challenge.
So, I thought about it and decided that I couldn't justify buying more stencils or masks. I decided the best idea was to make my own stencil. I pulled out a piece of acetate (mine came from a package of overhead projector pages) and placed it in my Cricut. I cut out three snow flakes of varying size and style from the Winter Lace cart. On a side note, I kept trying to tell myself I didn't really need this cart but when it went to $12 recently I just couldn't pass it up and I'm so glad I have it. I've used it at least a half dozen times in just a couple of weeks.
Here are the snowflakes after I used them as a stencil.
I think I like the first card better. What do you think?
