Simple Last Minute Holiday Card

Hi Friends,

Sherry Canino here for the Stencilgirl Creative Team. It always seems like the minute I'm ready for the holidays something else pops up and I need a last minute card for an event or gathering that I either didn't plan for or had forgotten about.

Today I'm here to share with you a quick and easy stenciling idea that you could use as the front to a card, put on a tag or even on a little card that you could add a ribbon to and tie around a bottle of wine.

Starting out I've gathered my supplies:

StencilGirl Stencils:  
Baby Angel Wings by Kristie Taylor

Christmas #1 By June Pfaff Daley 

Other supplies:
Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock
Inka Gold in Hydrangea and Magenta
Gold Glitter glue - Allure E 6000
Baby wipe and cosmetic sponge

Using the baby angel wings stencil and the Inka gold in Hydrangea with a baby wipe to stencil on the watercolor cardstock.  I then go back over the edges lightly with the Magenta Inka Gold to add a 2 toned stencil look.

I then switch to a cosmetic sponge (it seems to work a bit easier when you are stenciling a smaller word or letters).  I stencil with the Magenta Inka gold the word peace from the Christmas #1 stencil.

Add some gold glitter to the edge of the 4 corners - I like to use a paint brush with the glitter as it gives me more control of where it's going and I don't want big blobs so the paint brush gives it a nice elegant look.

I add a little glitter to the top of the Angel wing and on the tips of the feathers.

And your finished piece - you could do this on a tag or any cardstock or even directly onto a card front - super easy yet a beautiful elegant look for that last minute unplanned event or gathering.
