Here is another sample made with the cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. I cut stencils out of Mask Sheet, adhered them to a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and sponged the entire piece of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.


Two strips of October Afternoon Thrift Store patterned paper were cut with the Scalloped Scallop Border die and adhered on the bottom of the cloud layer. I stamped the tree from Grow Love Plant a Tree. with Black Memento ink once on Neenah Solar White cardstock, once on October Afternoon patterned paper. I cut them out, layered them on top of each other and colored the tree trunk with Copic Markers (E27, E29). Next I layered it on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock and sewed around the edges. Then it was adhered first on red cardstock, then on a 4 1/4″ x 11″ white card base.

To dress up the card a bit, I outlined the clouds with Starlit Stickles. Tiny Twinkles were adhered to the tree with Mono liquid glue.


I kept the inside of the card very simple. I just added a strip of October Afternoon that had been cut with Scalloped Scallop Border die.
