Beautiful Bay Leaf

Hi! It's Georgina with my regular Thursday post.
As part of the Stencil promotion I have a card to share with you using the lovely Imagination Crafts Bay Leaf stencil available from Lisa B Designs.
For more details about the promotion and how you can be entered into a prize draw, pop over to Kirsten's blog post from Monday.

This is my card for today...

The card blank I used was a 148x148mm scallop edge card blank. I scored the front panel in half to form a Z card. The photos above is the card laid out flat and the photo below is the card folded.

I cut a square of patterned lilac card. I used the Bay Leaf stencil and Pastel Green and Old Rose Sparkle Medium to create the image onto the lilac card. To get the two-tone flowers I first added the Pastel Green Saparkle Medium through the stencil and left it to dry. Once dry I repositioned the stencil and added the Old Rose Sparkle Medium. I cut the lilac card into two pieces once the Medium was dry. I added one piece to the front of the card and the other inside. I also added a strip of purple card along the edge of the inside panel.
I also create a stencilled panel again using the Bay Leaf stencil for the inside of the card. For this panel I used Dusky Concord distress ink pad to colour through the stencil. I used a small piece of Cut 'n' Dry foam to add the colour through the stencil. I also stamped a sentiment inside the card. The sentiment stamp is part of Hobby Art's Birthday Collection stamp set. To finish I added white faux stitching.

  5. What a lovely card. I think the soft colours make it special. I wasn't sure about the sparkle medium when I first saw it but you've made it look more subtle and pretty, not garish and in your face! Thank you, Jan
