The challenge of the week at CHNC is to use yellow and/or an oval on our card. My daughter and I combined efforts for this card and decided to use both yellow (star punch with stickles on it - daughter's idea) and an oval ("snow" at base of tree is supposed to be in the shape of an oval - I did that part). We used the Dreamweaver Tree stencil I won over at Bah! Humbug! in March. My daughter suggested I use green flocking. I was worried that my glue dabbing technique would cause the swirls to run together, but it turned out quite nicely, I think, even though the glue towards the top was put on a little too heavy. (I'm excited that I was able to use this stencil - I plan on making quite a few cards with it this year.) We added a silver peel off sentiment (sent with the stencil, for my daughter - what a great treat!) and used a curved corner punch to finish it off.
Thanks for taking a look!
