Partial Stenciling Technique: Patriotic Card

Hi friends. Independence Day is approaching and if you like making cards to send to friends and family like I do, here’s a simple one to get started. I saw a video from Gina K Designs on partial stenciling so I decided to give it a try.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x 10″ and scored at 5″ to create the card base. I taped off the area I wanted to stencil with Low Tack Tape and made sure to cover the rest of the areas so as not to add unwanted ink in those areas. I used Tim Holtz Candied Apple and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks to create a gradient.

For the sentiment I diecut the letters for “fourth” from Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Kraft Stock and two from Simon Says Stamp Cardstock 100# Slate Gray using Honey Bee Tailgate Alphabet Dies. I also die cut silver stars using Queen & Company Foundation Dies #2.

I didn’t have any suitable stamps for the “Happy” and “of July” part of the sentiment so I printed some out from my computer. YOu can use a program like Microsoft Powerpoint or Word or Adobe Illustrator or any other program that allows you to create text and print it.

I left the inside of the card blank.
