Happy New Year, friends! Dilay here and I am so excited and honored to share my very first post as a member of the Pinkfresh Studio Design Team!

Today, I am sharing a traditional-sized card that I created using the lovely Floral Notes layering stencils. Let’s dive right in!

For this card, I used a technique that I’ve been wanting to try: creating my own patterned paper using slim layering stencils. It’s super easy and, as a bonus, is a great way to stretch your supplies!

To begin, I cut down a piece of white cardstock using the larger size of the Stitched Rectangles die set. I then stabilized the cardstock on a media mat while I stenciled the flowers using the Floral Notes coordinating stencil set. Since these stencils are intended to be used for a slimline card, once I centered and positioned the first stencil, I held it in place using low-tack tape before ink blending. Although there is a coordinating stamp for these stencils, I opted to not use it because I wanted a softer, no-line look. For the first stencil, I used Bubble Gum ink for the center of the blooms and blended it out using Slumber ink. For the second stencil, I used the same two colors (with a smaller blending brush) on the smaller flowers. Lastly, for the third and final stencil, I used Key Lime ink for all of the foliage.

Next, I die cut the center of the ink-blended Stitched Scallop Rectangle die set using only the smaller of the two frames, which ends up leaving an outer piece, a center frame, and an inner piece. I wanted to add dimension to the center frame, so I die cut the Stitched Scallop Rectangle die in white cardstock three times and adhered the layers together and under the ink-blended frame. I then adhered the entire configuration, with raised center, onto the center of an A2 size base.

For the sentiment, I die cut the ‘congrats’ sentiment from the Thin Words Everyday Script set three times in white and once in silver glitter cardstock. I adhered the layers together then adhered the sentiment onto the card. To finish, I added clear jewels to embellish my card!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more creations in the future!
